U. Chicago Philosophy Suspends PhD Admissions This Year


The Department of Philosophy at the University of Chicago has made an announcement concerning applications to its PhD program this year.

On the PhD Admissions page of their website is the following:

We regret to announce that the University of Chicago will not accept applications for the PhD program in Philosophy during the 2020-21 admissions cycle. As we focus our resources on supporting students during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will pause on bringing new students into the program until Autumn 2022. This was a difficult decision, but we are prioritizing supporting students who have already matriculated in the department. We encourage you to consider applying in the Autumn of 2021 for the Autumn 2022 cohort. 

If you know of other philosophy programs implementing similar measures, please let us know in the comments.
