Professor Deborah Slicer
Environmental Philosophy M.A.
A Master's degree in environmental philosophy can stand on its own or provide valuable preparation for a PhD in philosophy, law school, public policy work, the non-profit sector, or environmental writing, analysis, and consulting. At the University of Montana in Missoula, we believe we provide an intellectual and cultural environment for this work that is both unique and cutting-edge.
We have a "Distinctive Program" designation from the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. This means that a graduate student enrolling in our environmental philosophy emphasis who is an official resident of a Western state can enroll at Montana's in-state tuition rates for AY 2020-21 (rising to 150% of in-state tuition from AY 2021-onwards). The Western states covered by this agreement include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
