UMSL began offering an M.A. in philosophy in 2000.
Our graduates have gone to Ph.D. programs at: Arizona, Boston University, Colorado, Connecticut, CUNY, Duke, Illinois-Carbondale, Illinois-Chicago, Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania, Rutgers, Saint Louis University, SUNY-Buffalo, Temple, Texas, UCLA, UC-Santa Cruz, Washington University-STL, and Wisconsin.
Our M.A. program is especially suitable for those interested in studying philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of science, medieval philosophy, or metaethics.
We are happy to work with smart dedicated students who did not major in philosophy as undergraduates. For more detailed information of the program, please see the links on the left.
