Students are encouraged to do complementary work in fields outside philosophy. Here they are able to draw on the world-class strength of Michigan's departments across the disciplines and in related fields. The program regulations are designed to enable students to complete all pre-dissertation requirements in three years and to complete the dissertation in five to six years. There is special emphasis on effecting the transition from courses and seminars to dissertation work.
