About

The Master of Arts in Philosophy at Eastern Michigan University has three possible capstones, dividing the M.A. into three streams: the Thesis Stream, the Project Stream, and the Course Work Stream.

Overview

Students in our M.A. Philosophy program at Eastern Michigan University focus their work on one of two divisions, Methodology or Social Justice. These divisions reflect two distinctive strengths of our faculty: its pluralistic composition and its concern with problems of Social Justice. 

Learning outcomes

Our faculty are trained and work in analytic, continental, and Chinese philosophical traditions, and this pluralistic composition allows us to train students in a wider range of methodological practices, presuppositions, skills, styles, and theories. A second strength of the philosophy faculty at Eastern is our attention to problems in Social Justice. We have several faculty whose central research programs focus on tough ethical problems including the justice of immigration policies, our responsibility relative to food production and consumption, global and environmental ethics and justice, and the nature of historically marginalized groups' rights in an increasingly global and modern environment.

Our graduate program seeks to do all it can to make philosophy an inclusive discipline. We understand the value that diversity brings to philosophical inquiry, and that the health of our profession depends on greater inclusion of under-represented groups in the ranks of philosophers.
