Department of Philosophy

Mary Ellen Waithe, Department Chair
The Master of Arts in Philosophy program provides an opportunity for graduate study to individuals with a serious interest in philosophy. Inquiries are welcome from students whose primary background is in another field or academic discipline. The program regularly offers courses in all the major areas of philosophy, meeting the needs of those who are preparing to enter a Ph.D. program, as well as those studying for personal or professional enrichment.

The department awards several teaching assistantships each year. A student interested in applying for an assistantship should write a letter to the Graduate Advisor requesting consideration when he or she submits an application for graduate admission.
Graduates of the Master of Arts in Philosophy degree program have gone on to successfully complete Ph.D. programs, to graduate from law school or medical school; and to teach at the community college level.
To be admitted to the program, the student must satisfy College of Graduate Studies requirements for admission. Although an undergraduate major in philosophy is not required, some study in philosophy beyond the introductory level is strongly recommended. A background in the history of philosophy and in logic is especially important, and deficiencies in these areas must be made up early in the student’s graduate career. To be considered for admission, a student must submit an application form, two letters of recommendation, and transcripts from all academic institutions attended.
