If you’ve answered the first question in the affirmative, then you will have to figure out what schools and programs you should apply to. Ask yourself what kinds of philosophy, what historical epochs, what sorts of questions and figures you want to study and then contact faculty in our department who teach in those areas for advice. If you want to continue in Continental Philosophy, or in the history of philosophy (ancient philosophy, for example, or German idealism), or in feminism, or social and political philosophy or Asian philosophy, talk to the professors who teach in those areas here at DePaul and get a list of graduate programs suited to your interests.
Since DePaul’s philosophy department is generally oriented toward Continental Philosophy, the history of philosophy, and social and political philosophy, you may want to investigate the following programs where these areas are taught: Boston College, Boston University, University of California at Berkeley (especially the rhetoric program), Emory University (both in philosophy and comparative literature), Fordham University, Johns Hopkins University (especially the Humanities Center), Louvain University in Belgium, Loyola University, McGill University, Memphis University, University of New Mexico, the New School for Social Research in NYC, Miami University of Ohio (for an MA degree), Northwestern University, University of Oregon, University of Ottawa, Penn State University, Stony Brook University of New York, the State University of New York at Binghampton, the State University of New York at Buffalo (both in philosophy and in comparative literature), the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Toronto, Vanderbilt University, Villanova University, and York University. (This list is, of course, by no means exhaustive.)
You want to go through the whole application process only once in your life, so you should probably apply to several schools—at least five, probably between seven and ten—in order to maximize your chances for success. This can be a rather costly process, but it is often worth the effort and expense.
