How to Apply
Successful applicants to graduate studies in Philosophy are admitted for the fall term, which begins in August.
Applications must be postmarked no later than January 2.
Applicants should have a good background in philosophy. However, an undergraduate philosophy major is not a prerequisite.
To apply, students must complete and submit an electronic application or arrange for the documents listed below to be sent to:
100 N. University Street
West Lafayette, IN 47907-2098
three letters of recommendation;
transcripts of all prior university-level studies;
GRE scores (international applicants who are not native English speakers must also submit TOEFL scores);
statement of purpose;
a sample of written work in philosophy.
Non-degree students may be admitted for either the fall or spring term. Such students need submit only an electronic application and either official transcripts or copies of official transcripts, but they should contact the Director of Graduate Admissions before applying.
