The MA in Philosophy is a terminal degree for full- or part-time students. The program helps to prepare students to make contributions to philosophical discussion and debate and offers considerable flexibility within the program of study. This flexibility can serve as a vehicle to combine an intensive philosophical training with various interests (for example, aesthetics with training in a fine art, or political philosophy with training in law). Additionally, the department’s philosophical life is significantly enriched by its close association with Boston University’s Center for Philosophy and History of Science, the Institute for Philosophy and Religion, and the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen (Vienna).
