Philosophy Graduate Program Application Information Spreadsheet


Someone created a useful tool for students applying to graduate programs in philosophy: an admissions and application spreadsheet.

It lists many* programs along with information about deadlines, test requirements, language requirements, and so on, and provides links to the various graduate programs’ websites.

It was created by a graduate student who initially posted it at The Grad Cafe.

You can access the spreadsheet directly here.

*Not all. For example, the University of South Carolina is missing from the list. Information about that program is here. Feel free to list information about other programs not currently on the spreadsheet in the comments.

The University of South Carolina has been added to the PhD section of the spreadsheet. Some information isn’t clear from a quick look at the graduate school websites/application pages, so I will investigate more this evening and update the information.Report

Added!

Do you know what kinds of transcripts are required? I’m seeing “2 official transcripts” on the philosophy departments application page and “unofficial or official are acceptable” (paraphrased) on the graduate school’s page.

Should folks be doing both? I.e., uploading “unofficial” copy with the online application and sending in a hard copy to the grad school?Report

The MA program “Philosophy of Science” of the Leibniz University Hannover (Germany) would also appreciate it to be listed. Info can be found here: https://www.uni-hannover.de/en/studium/studienangebot/info/studiengang/detail/philosophy-of-science/
Deadlines are May 31 and November 30. If you need any additional info, please let me know.Report

Added! For funding, is it the case that the university waives general tuition fees for *all* students or only students from Germany/EU? My German is, well, it needs a lot of work and even looking at the English pages it seems likely I will have missed something.Report

First of all, thank you for adding it and for compiling such a helpful list in the first place! Concerning funding: There are no tuition or application fees for anyone; only minor administration fees (~$500), that include a ticket for state-wide public transport.

Furthermore, there are no letters of recommendations or a GRE needed. Applicants need to have a suitable bachelor’s degree, though. Meaning, it must related to some of the fields prescribed on the webpage. Additionally, accepted students may apply for funding provided by the state or privately funded scholarships.Report

Also, please do add the University of Arkansas to this spreadsheet. We have distinct programs for the MA and PhD, with information available here: https://fulbright.uark.edu/departments/philosophy/graduate/index.php
We also have an unusually late deadline for full consideration for teaching assistantships (for both MA and PhD candidates) — March 25.Report

Added! If any of the info looks off, just let me know. Since it looks like y’all want PhD applicants looking for fellowships to send their applications in by Feb 1, I noted that as well in addition to the funding deadline.Report
