Department of Philosophy
The one-year master's program gives a unique focus to graduate work in philosophy while preparing students for doctoral study or for careers in government or the private sector. The program focuses on contemporary and historical perspectives on persons, and their relationships to themselves and others in moral, political and cultural settings. Students will explore metaphysical, epistemological, moral, and political questions about selves, agency and communities in five graduate level courses and will write a major research paper.
Graduate students are trained to do advanced research in traditional and contemporary areas of philosophical scholarship.
