The Libraries seek to support research in all areas of philosophy, including the history of philosophy, epistemology, aesthetics, logic, political theory, ethics and philosophy of science. It supports the needs of undergraduate, graduate, Ph.D. students, the teaching faculty, post-docs, and research staff members.

No new courses have been introduced but the Philosophy of Science continues to be a growing area of research and instruction.
Areas of established specialization are all areas of philosophy. The program is particularly strong in aesthetics, logic and the philosophy of science, history of philosophy is beginning a return to its former strength in the program.
