Welcome to the Philosophy Department at Rice University
We are committed to excellence in research and teaching.
Among our research strengths are ethics (especially applied ethics), social and political philosophy, the history of philosophy and core analytic areas (especially philosophy of mind).
Our teaching is intended to prepare doctoral students for careers, and to provide both undergraduate majors and students from other disciplines with philosophical knowledge and skills.
