Master's Degree

A Master’s Degree in Philosophy will be awarded to students who have:

  • (A) completed two years of course work,
  • (B) passed both proseminars,
  • (C) received passing grades in courses that satisfy the Department’s distribution requirements,
  • (D) satisfied the Department’s logic requirement, and

A student who has satisfied all of these requirements except (B), having passed the first-year seminar but not the second, may receive a Master’s Degree upon successful revision of the proseminar paper or the writing of a new and superior paper (on a topic acceptable to the Department). Students must apply for a degree on Caesar upon completion of requirements.
