The Department of Philosophy offers a graduate program leading to the M.A. degree which is designed to prepare students for teaching and research in philosophy and for doctoral-level graduate work in philosophy and in other disciplines, as well as for positions in government and industry where a broad liberal arts background with strong critical training is desired. Students planning to enroll for graduate courses in philosophy should consult their advisers before registering.

Admission requirements are those established for admission to the Graduate School. The Department of Philosophy may require a student to remedy specific deficiencies in preparation by enrolling without graduate credit in certain courses.
