The Philosophy Department at UB has a faculty with expertise across broad areas of the discipline with two areas of special focus: Applied Ontology, and Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Undergraduates may pursue either a major or a minor, and joint or double majors with other disciplines are also encouraged.
The Department has cross-disciplinary ties with other units of the University, including the Romanell Center for Clinical Ethics and the Philosophy of Medicine, and the UB Departments of Biomedical Informatics, Computer Science, and Geography. The Department also hosts the National Center for Ontological Research.
Our faculty and affiliate faculty are active in UB's School of Law, Center for Cognitive Science, Humanities Institute, and, Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.
