Program Description:

The mission of the Master of Arts in Philosophy (MAPhil) is to develop students who are capable of serving their community and the Church successfully in a variety of vocations, including academic, parachurch, and ecclesiastical professions. The MAPhil degree is intended to offer students training in the critical and philosophical skills that are useful for their further academic study and also for their growth as followers of God. MAPhil graduates may continue their education at the doctoral level. In addition, the MAPhil program contains a Certificate of Apologetics. The coursework for the certificate is 18 hours and overlaps with the MAPhil curriculum while also containing electives for those wishing to focus on apologetics. A student can complete the certificate while in the MAPhil program or just pursue the certificate. Finally, there is an option to complete a research track as part of the program. This track is ideal for students who desire to write a thesis and use that as the basis for further graduate work in philosophy.
