The M.A. in Philosophy from Ohio University has research and teaching interests in the following areas:
- History and philosophy of science, including philosophy of biology, philosophy of physics, philosophy of mind and cognitive science
- Logic and philosophy of mathematics
- History of philosophy, including ancient, medieval, and early modern philosophy
- Ethics, including metaethics, normative and applied ethics, and the history of ethics
- Social and political philosophy
- Epistemology and philosophy of language
- Philosophy of religion
The department admits four to six students into the M.A. program each year. So the students will be able to have substantial personal interaction with the faculty. In addition, the annual Philosophy Forum gives students the opportunity to study recent work of leading philosophers. Every spring term, the graduate students take a seminar on the recent work of the year’s Forum speaker, and later in the term, the students meet the speaker for three days, attending a public lecture and three intensive seminars led by the speaker.
- The M.A. program in Philosophy at Ohio University provides students with the foundation for doctoral studies in philosophy or other careers-such as law-where critical reasoning, writing, reading, and speaking skills are prized.
