The Department of Philosophy here at Rice University offers both a B.A. and a Ph.D. in Philosophy. The department has particular strengths in the philosophy of mind (consciousness and its relation to the physical world, phenomenology, the significance of neuroscience for philosophical theorizing . . .) and in moral and political philosophy (justice, responsibility, the institution of marriage, the nature of achievement . . .), and other strengths and interests as broad as philosophy itself.
