Master’s Program

We are now accepting applications from those planning to start in Fall 2024. Entrance exams and interviews (for those invited) will be conducted online.

The M.A. degree in philosophy is designed to develop an advanced understanding of philosophical problems, especially those in contemporary analytic philosophy and the history of philosophy. It provides students with an understanding of key philosophical debates and problems, and encourages them to develop and defend their own argumentative position. Coursework will often have an interdisciplinary character. Many courses will explore the impact of empirical and theoretical developments in other disciplines on contemporary philosophical debates.

  • Our research focuses on the central areas of analytic philosophy, especially metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and social and political philosophy. We also have strengths in the history of philosophy, especially ancient philosophy and early modern philosophy.

An undergraduate degree in philosophy is not a pre-requisite for applying to the program and coursework is designed to prepare all accepted students for advanced philosophical research. We also warmly welcome applications from international students.
