Retention/Graduation

Retention and Graduation Data

Individuals applying to do graduate work in philosophy should ask the departments to which they apply detailed questions about their retention and graduation rates.

All students admitted to our M.A. program are now admitted with assistantships. However, prior to 2008, we admitted substantial numbers of students without assistantships.  Here we present data for all full-time students in the traditional and neurophilosophy tracks for the entering classes from 2008 and on.

Due to higher retention rates in our program and the reduced number of slots in Ph.D. programs, the Department has decided to somewhat decrease the size of its entering classes.
