Top Continental Programs

These are lists of top continental programs which I have found all over the web. The full lists are included but I will also include a smaller list of which schools they all agree on and which almost all agree on. 

The lists were taken from the following:

All 5 Lists agree on the following Universities:

Loyola - Chicago

4 out of 5 agree on the following universities. (~Name) is who did not list the school.

Villanova (~Lieter)
Depaul (~Lieter)
U of Texas at Austin (~Pluralists Guide)
Duquesne (~ Lieter)
Boston University (~Pluralists Guide)
University of Oregon (~Lieter)
Georgetown (~Hartmann) 
UC Riverside (~Hartmann)
University of Toronto (~Hartmann)
Vanderbilt  University ( ~ Hartmann)

There were a lot of universities which 3 agreed on probably in the range of 20-30. That seemed a bit over the top.

From John Hartmann at the Hartman Report

Listed here are self-descriptions of Philosophy Departments interested in, supportive of, or specializing in continental philosophy.

It is based on personal knowledge of our faculty and flyers and catalogues for graduate programs in philosophy. Since this list has been posted online, it has also been influenced by email correspondence with graduate students and faculty. If you know of a program which ought to be listed here, or struck from the list, please let me know, and please be patient with the suggested updates.

Strongly Recommended departments have indications that graduate students will be encouraged and supported to pursue work in this area, will find a supportive community of scholars and mentors, and will be able to write a state of the art dissertation in continental philosophy.
