Overview

Master of Arts in Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy at Memorial University offers an M.A. program with a strong emphasis on writing in Philosophy. The program is designed so that it may be completed in one academic year (three semesters) of full-time study. The program involves both course work and a thesis. Normally, a full-time candidate will complete all 18 credit hours and submit a thesis proposal by the end of the second semester of study. A minimum of one additional semester will be spent in completing the balance of the programme. Students will submit a thesis proposal. Upon approval by his or her supervisor, the student will write the M.A. thesis over the summer semester and submit at the end of August for examination.

Academic background and requirement

The normal requirement for admission to the program is a first-class degree in Philosophy (normally an honours degree) or the equivalent. Students with strong combinations of Philosophy and related disciplines can also be considered for admission. Programs are sometimes arranged to include some undergraduate work in areas not already covered in earlier academic experience.
