Home to a distinguished tradition of philosophical research and teaching, our department provides a comprehensive academic atmosphere for pursuing advanced study in a wide range of philosophical subjects and methods—systematic, analytic, and historical.  Please follow the appropriate link on the navigation column on the left to learn more about our faculty, our graduate and undergraduate programs, our events, and more.

In 2001, Columbia’s Philosophy Department was united with the Philosophy Department at Barnard College. We now function as a single department with shared policies and standards. Please go here for a tour of the Columbia Campus and here for a tour of the Barnard campus.

Our department is also home to The Journal of Philosophy. Please go here to visit its website.
