The Graduate Program of Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology is a track within the Ph.D. program in Philosophy. At the graduate level, the department offers a Ph.D. in PNP. We do not accept students interested in pursuing only an MA. PNP is not a general cognitive science program. PNP supplements graduate training in philosophy with additional course work and research on modes of inquiry, empirical results and theoretical perspectives of psychology and the neurosciences. The aim of the Program is to turn out first-rate philosophers with a strong ancillary competence in areas pertaining to Neuroscience and Psychology. Admission to the Program is highly competitive.
There are currently 12 students studying for the PhD in the PNP program.
