7.18.1 Program of Study

The Degree of Master of Arts is offered in Philosophy by full-time or part-time study. The program is designed so that it may be completed in one academic year (three semesters) of full-time study.

The candidate must complete 18 credit hours - 3 credit hours from 6000, 12 credit hours from 6011-6016, any 3 credit hours from 6101-6102 - and a thesis.

Normally, a full-time candidate will complete all the 18 credit hours and submit a thesis proposal by the end of the second semester of study. A minimum of one additional semester will be spent in completing the balance of the program.
