The Graduate Center is the focal point for advanced teaching and
research at The City University of New York (CUNY), the nation's
largest urban public university. With over 35 doctoral and master’s
programs of the highest caliber, the Graduate Center fosters
pioneering research and scholarship in the arts and sciences and
prepares students for careers in universities and the private,
nonprofit, and government sectors. The Graduate Center’s commitment
to research and scholarship for the public good is exemplified by
its more than 30 centers, institutes, and initiatives, including

The Ph.D. Program in Philosophy at the Graduate Center seeks a

Philosophy of Race. Additional research areas of particular
interest include Africana philosophy and social/political

a much larger group of consortial faculty members who teach and
advise students at the Graduate Center in addition to their primary
appointments at other colleges within the CUNY system. This

breadth and depth in field coverage and approaches to scholarship,
and enables the department to select the most accomplished

colleges and seven community colleges within CUNY.
