About

Louisiana State University offers the Master of Arts in Philosophy, with thesis and non-thesis options. 

Overview

The M.A. in Philosophy offered by Louisiana State University enables students to discover whether they should pursue the Ph.D. and prepares them for admission to doctoral programs as well as for a wide variety of careers. As the only graduate program in philosophy at a public university in Louisiana, one of its aims is to assist students who have not had the opportunity to complete an undergraduate philosophy degree.

 The M.A. in philosophy should help such students to develop the necessary background as well as to determine whether to pursue doctoral level studies. The faculty, therefore, welcomes qualified and motivated students who lack extensive undergraduate work in philosophy.

The program in philosophy at LSU offers a wide range of courses covering:

  •  fundamental philosophical questions
  •  logic
  •   history of philosophy

Programme Structure

Course include:

  • Contemporary Moral Problems
  • Symbolic Logic
  •  Professional Ethics
