Philosophy Placement Record

The University of Rochester has an excellent record of placing its PhD degree holders in academic jobs. To provide prospective students with an indication of our past success, we here provide records covering recent years of PhD degree holders. In the table below we provide the following information about each person who has received the PhD degree in Philosophy from the University of Rochester from 2003 to 2015: area of the dissertation (not necessarily the same as the person's areas of specialization), year when the degree was received, and current employment, if known. An entry of "No Data" in this last column indicates that we do not know the employment status of the person in question.

We caution that although this data is complete and accurate to the best of our knowledge, we cannot guarantee that there are no errors or omissions. The department would appreciate knowing of any needed corrections to this information. Potential students should also recognize that past results are not a guarantee of future results.
