The Doctoral Program with Concentration in Philosophy

At the graduate level, philosophy joins with literature and politics in the doctoral program of the Institute of Philosophic Studies to underscore the philosophic core of the liberal arts. The doctoral program seeks to develop scholars who are not simply focused upon their specialties, but carry a developed and continually developing awareness of their relation to other fields of human endeavor.

The Master of Arts in Philosophy

The Master of Arts program intends to engage students in a serious and thorough study of the western philosophic tradition. It is not expected, however, that students will acquire merely an extrinsic knowledge of historical authors and doctrines. Rather, they should hope to recover the best of the philosophic tradition in personal appreciation by rethinking the tradition in the light of the persistent questions, new and old.
