Master of Arts in Social Philosophy
The MA program in Social Philosophy is designed for students interested in ethical, political, and other philosophical issues concerning society and social justice.
Students who enter the program must be sufficiently familiar with the history and general methodology of philosophy to complete courses and other requirements successfully. Those admitted who do not meet this prerequisite will be required to fulfill it by taking undergraduate courses or otherwise satisfying the Philosophy Department that they are prepared to do graduate work in social philosophy.
Required Courses (10)
Of the required courses, up to three may (but need not) be taken as upper-division undergraduate (300-level) courses. The remainder must be graduate courses (400- or 500-level).
The above requirements apply to any student following the M.A. program in Social Philosophy. However, Jesuits who elect to pursue this degree should consult with their advisor regarding other requirements associated with their First Studies program.
