Philosophy PhD Program Ratings by Former Students, Placement Data, and Diversity Profiles

Academic Placement Data and Analysis (APDA), a project aimed at gathering placement and other data about graduate programs in philosophy, has created some tables presenting some of the information they’ve obtained.

I’ve posted them below (it may need a few extra seconds to load).

The first collects responses to this question: “How likely would you be to recommend the program from which you obtained your PhD to prospective philosophy students?”

The second shows “the overall permanent academic placement rate and the permanent academic placement rate for placements in other PhD granting programs for all 2012 and later graduates in the database (i.e. more than just survey respondents). It also shows the average salary and percentage time spent on research, teaching, and service for all the survey respondents from that program.”

The third makes use of data from a variety of sources to present diversity profiles of departments (which the APDA team says may be incomplete).
