To 10 Reason to Study PhilosophyThe study of philosophy has been part of the curriculum of Indiana University since its founding in 1820. Our graduate program has been nationally recognized for research excellence for the past forty years. Currently, the department's research profile is well balanced across all major areas of philosophical inquiry, with a few areas of notable strength.   Given the added resources of the University's Pure and Applied Logic Program, large and acclaimed Cognitive Sciences Program, the Department of the History and Philosophy of Science, and a few philosophers based in other departments, prospective students of philosophy have an exceptionally diverse array of study options and a lively and friendly intellectual community in which to develop.
