Forum to discuss graduate study in the United States

Are you interested in studying in the United States?

The Philosophy Department is hosting a forum to discuss graduate study in the United States.

HKU Philosophy graduate Charlie Siu will be on hand on 25 May to talk with students who might be considering graduate study in the United States. He can answer questions about:

-financial support of MA programs in general and Texas A&M's in particular,

-what is involved in finishing a MA program;

-when and how to prepare for MA/PhD applications;

-anything else you might want to know about graduate study in philosophy.

About Charlie Siu:

After finishing his BA at HKU in 2006, he went to Texas A&M University to do a MA in philosophy. While studying there, he became interested in logic, metaphysics, and philosophy of mathematics. He completed his MA thesis on Stewart Shapiro's mathematical structuralism in 2008. He then did some adjunct teaching at A&M for a year. He will begin his PhD studies at Brown University the coming Fall.
