Alumni of both the Masters degree and the Bachelors degree Philosophy program at the University of Wyoming have gone on to do wonderful things for themselves, for their community, for the State of Wyoming, and for the world. We encourage our alumni to contact us with news of their success.


Alumni Success

Several of our Masters degree alumni have been admitted to top-tier Philosophy Ph.D. programs, and some alumni have secured permanent tenure-track academic positions at prestigious universities.
