The Graduate Program in Philosophy at Marquette University is especially strong in Continental Philosophy. We have seven faculty members who work either in contemporary Continental Philosophy or its history (e.g., Hegel, Kierkegaard, Marx, and Nietzsche). In addition, the department maintains its traditional strengths in the History of Philosophy, Ethics, and Social Philosophy. With over 60 Graduate Students and 28 Full-Time Faculty members, the department regularly sponsors speakers in all areas of Philosophy. Particularly notable is the Seminar on Phenomenology and Hermeneutics, which features an international set of speakers each year. In the last three years, dissertations have been written on Levinas, Arendt, Heidegger, Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, and Lonergan.
