Dr. Neil Campbell, Program Coordinator
Department Directory

Our one-year masterís 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. During the second term students will also participate in a research seminar, in which they begin their major research papers and discuss their work-in-progress with other students in the program.
