The Department of Philosophy is housed in Angell Hall, a central location within a block of the University Library and other main campus buildings, and minutes from campus area book stores, restaurants, coffee houses, and shopping.
The Department has marvelous facilities for seminars and classes, work and study, and the informal exchange of ideas. We have our own classroom for advanced courses, as well as a seminar room. Most all graduate courses meet in Angell Hall or in a connecting building, Mason Hall. Graduate students have study spaces, with work areas and shelf space for individual students. There is also a separate space for graduate student instructors to hold office hours and meet with undergraduates. In addition, the University's largest computing site is located in Angell Hall. The commons room affords opportunity for informal philosophical discussion and for informal meetings.
The Department's Tanner Philosophy Library is a gem. Its non-circulating collection includes over six thousand monographs and forty print journal subscriptions. There is easy access to online books and journals available at the University Library through the Tanner online catalog. The Library also holds Michigan Philosophy dissertations since 1950 and a special collection from the private library of the late William Frankena. The two main rooms of the Library provide yet an additional option for graduate work space.
