Welcome to the website of the Department of Philosophy at Texas A&M University!

The programs in philosophy at Texas A&M University are structured to provide students with the skills necessary to appreciate more fully the central concerns of human existence and develop abilities in problem-solving, communication, persuasion, writing, and critical thinking.

Today, the department contains 16 full-time faculty members actively pursuing research in a number of traditions within the discipline. We have strengths in areas such as Africana, Analytic Metaphysics, Value Theory, Continental, and Latin American/Decolonial philosophy. Please visit our Research page for a complete list of faculty research interests and descriptions of individual faculty’s contributions to these areas. In addition to a premier research profile, we boast award winning Instructional professors.
