The Philosophy Department offers three different kinds of graduate courses, as follows:
General classes survey a wide range of topics and are designed to acquaint students with the major theories and developments in a field. They are suitable for those who have not specialized in the field as an undergraduate.
Seminar classes, which assume some previous exposure to the subject, are central to the graduate program. These seminars are designed to deepen the student's understanding of an area by focusing on a specific theme or problem.
Students in the MA program must take a minimum of three half-year seminar classes (9 credit hours) as part of their total (18 credit hours). Students in the PhD program must take at least four half-year seminar classes (12 credit hours) as part of their total (18 credit hours).
Directed Study Classes
Directed Study classes are developed jointly by a student and the instructor in special cases to suit individual interests and needs.These classes are subject to departmental approval. If you are interested in a directed study course, please contact the Graduate Coordinator.
