Use the table below to look up a summarized version of the admissions requirements for various PhD programs in philosophy. While we strive to keep our information up to date, please be sure to confirm information on the respective school websites as there will be times when we are not quite up to date. There are also some problems with the "sort by deadline" feature unfortunately. Search function works though!
For the most up-to-date information and additional notes/links to the respective programs websites (and links to fee waiver information), see the original Google spreadsheet. We are in the process of re-coding the spreadsheet on this page to include links and a better search function/sort function. In the meantime, we will be keeping link functionality through the original spreadsheet.
This version is currently (mostly) up-to-date for the 2022-2023 cycle. Additional checks are being made for GRE requirements, however, and deadlines.
