Why choose graduate studies in Philosophy?
The main objective of graduate studies in philosophy is to examine its fundamental and intrinsically interesting questions.
However, the excellent liberal education afforded by a graduate philosophy degree is now also recognized as a superior preparation for many policy and executive positions in government, industry and the professions.
Our M.A. graduates, for example, often go on to law school. Hospitals are now hiring philosophers as ethical consultants. Artificial intelligence researchers are turning to philosophers for advice.
Some students use the M.A. degree as a stepping stone on the way to a Ph.D. in philosophy. Others regard the M.A. as a comprehensive and integrated programme in its own right. Memorial's programme is designed for both purposes.
