Graduate Student Exchange Program with the University of Edinburgh Philosophy Department
The Philosophy Departments at Northwestern and the University of Edinburgh have a graduate student exchange program, allowing students from each department to visit the other department for as short as a term and as long as a year. The program is open to any Ph.D. student at Northwestern’s Philosophy Department. In terms of LEMMing offerings, Edinburgh has exceptional strengths in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of cognitive science.
