About

The Philosophy graduate program offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is relatively small which allows for close interaction between students and faculty and among the graduate students. 

Overview

There are frequent colloquia featuring either distinguished visiting speakers or University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty and graduate students. In particular, the weekly Graduate Student Colloquia provide master's and doctoral students the opportunity to present their academic research. This master degree in Philosophy  is available at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

The department has special strengths in epistemology, metaphysics, and ethics, but students write dissertations across a wide range of fields, including philosophy of religion, history of philosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind.

Requirements for both the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees include taking core courses in the main areas of philosophy (such as ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, history of philosophy, and logic) and writing research papers in the major areas of philosophy. Work toward the Ph.D. is completed by production of a dissertation. The doctoral program is designed to prepare students for the profession, providing both teaching and research experience.
