Philosophy at CGU seeks to provide a solid foundation in the history of Western philosophy, approaching traditional problems and texts in light of contemporary interests and methods. Study and research focus on classic texts from the ancient, early-modern (16th through 18th centuries) and contemporary periods. Students may also combine philosophy with other interests.

The faculty includes full-time CGU instructors, philosophers from The Claremont Colleges, visitors from other universities and countries, and accomplished adjunct faculty.

The Master’s program is designed for students who seek either to expand their experience with the Western philosophical tradition in preparation for pursuing professional degrees and occupations outside of philosophy, or to enrich their knowledge of the fundamental strands of that tradition before moving on to more specialized doctoral study.

Admission to the doctoral program is restricted to students who have graduated with distinction from CGU’s Master of Arts in Philosophy  program and who wish to work in the history of philosophy field.
