The Philosophy program offered by Tulane University can help students develop a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of both contemporary issues in philosophy as well as the history of philosophy, and to prepare to seek admission into a competitive PhD program. It is also useful for students who have a strong interest in philosophy, but are unsure about whether they would like to commit to pursuing a PhD.
The philosophy department at Tulane offers a wide variety of courses, and is especially attractive for students wishing to pursue research in ethics, political philosophy, the history of philosophy, and philosophy of mind. For information about our faculty members, please see our faculty page.
An undergraduate major in philosophy is desirable for graduate study in philosophy, but it is not essential. However, students admitted with insufficient background in ethics or logic or the history of philosophy may be required to take courses in these areas without graduate credit.
Transfer course credit for previous graduate work in philosophy is possible.
The terminal MA program is independent of the PhD program at Tulane. Subsequent admission to the PhD program at Tulane requires application through the normal channels. The program is intended to be completed within two years.
