Graduate Study in the Sage School
The Sage School's graduate program leads to the Ph.D. in philosophy. Its distinguishing characteristics are small classes and a collegial atmosphere in which vibrant philosophical exchange among graduate students, faculty, and visiting philosophers is the norm. Graduate students receive individual attention to their work from faculty members. And the intellectual community among graduate students is stimulating and supportive.
Cornell is an unusually diverse university of about eighteen thousand students. There are about four thousand undergraduates in the College of Arts and Sciences and about forty-five hundred students in the Graduate School. Ithaca is a city of about thirty thousand people (including students), situated amid great natural beauty at the southern end of Lake Cayuga, one of the largest of New York's Finger Lakes.
