Philosophy at the University of Montana is an exceptional department within an exceptional institution for the study of environmental issues. In addition to a world class W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation, the University has many highly regarded departments including those in the Division of Biological Sciences, English, Environmental Studies, and Native American Studies. We also have a strong tradition in environmental writing and an active program in ethics and public affairs. There is a continual stream of readings, lectures, conferences, and events on campus related to natural resources and environmental issues.

Missoula is in a beautiful location at the nexus of five valleys. It is home to numerous environmental organizations, state and federal natural resource agencies, writers, and environmental educators and advocates. 

Our Master's program makes the most of these home field advantages to offer a contemporary program of engaged and applied philosophy.
