Master of Arts (Philosophy)

The Master of Arts (Philosophy) is designed to facilitate the skills associated with studying philosophy and build a firm foundation for independent research. This highly-focussed program will appeal to students from a wide range of academic backgrounds and provides a thought-provoking overview of this fascinating discipline. Over the course of your studies, you will be required to take 13 philosophy courses from the University’s annual roster and also complete a supervised research project based on a philosophical text.

Our Master of Arts (Philosophy) program covers the essential analytical skills associated with the study of philosophy and also provides a strong basis for independent research. By undertaking a Master’s degree, you have the opportunity to explore subject areas which are particularly interesting to you and develop them into a research project.

The degree allows students to explore their interest in philosophy, which can help further their current professional skills. Depending on their choice of program, students cover diverse areas such as Natural Law, Cosmology, History of Philosophy, Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Language and Moral Philosophy. The Supervised Research Project also allows a close reading and analysis of a particular text in philosophy.
