Graduate Program

The Department of Philosophy offers the Masters of Arts degree. Students choose from two tracks: (1) M.A. in Environmental Philosophy; (2) M.A. in Philosophy. The department is particularly strong in environmental philosophy. Our environmental masters track draws on the department’s expertise in wilderness issues, Thoreau, critical animal studies, philosophy of technology, philosophy of ecology, literature and environment, the Anthropocene, and climate ethics. The department offers a second masters track for students who wish to pursue a more traditional course of study.  Departmental funding is, except in rare circumstances, reserved for students in the environmental track.
