Survey on graduate philosophy education

A note from David Concepción: Please take this survey if you are eligible. Thanks!


We invite you to help us learn more about teacher training for Philosophy graduate students by taking approximately 10 minutes to complete an online survey.

The objective of this research is to determine the current state of teacher training for graduate students in the field of Philosophy. The data generated from this research should make it possible to develop recommendations regarding how, if at all, teacher training in the field of Philosophy might evolve.

To participate in this research study, you must be at least 18 years old. There are no apparent risks associated with this study. All data will be anonymous and no identifying information will be collected. Participation in this study is completely voluntary and participants are free to withdraw from the study at any time. 

If you are a current Philosophy Graduate Student or an Early Career Philosopher (PhD no earlier than August 2011), click here to go to the survey.

If you are a faculty member in a Philosophy department that has a Graduate Program, click here to go to the survey.

Early career Philosophers in a Philosophy department that has a graduate program may take both the early career and the faculty member survey.

Thank you for considering this invitation, and feel free to pass it on to others.

David W. Concepción
Philosophy Professor and Chair

  1. Seeing some of those questions really makes it hit home that I didn't receive anything even resembling training. I hope the results become public eventually, because I suspect my case is the norm--and it's scandalous!
