The Master of Arts in Philosophy program is a course of study designed to give a broad acquaintance with the major philosophical disciplines. It is a flexible program, with a six year time limit from entry into the program to completion of the degree requirements. 


The program is designed to prepare men and women for ministry, teaching philosophy, religion or theology, for a subsequent Post Master’s Certificate in Theology, or for licentiate or doctoral work. Classes also serve as enrichment for persons in other professions wanting to deepen understanding of their faith or seeking to integrate their faith into their daily lives.

Students may pursue one of five concentrations within the philosophy program, and these include Christian Wisdom, Ethics, General Studies, History of Philosophy and Systematic Philosophy.

Degree Program Goals:

  • To educate students in the history, major topics, and intellectual habits of Western philosophy, especially (a) in the rich diversity of the Catholic tradition, (b) in the distinctively Catholic ways of understanding the relationship between faith and reason, and (c) with consistent attention to the work of St. Thomas Aquinas
  • to develop in students a coherent and detailed knowledge of their philosophical concentration, its developing methodologies, its current literature, its history, its major theoretical constructs, and its classical and current problems and insights
  • to train students in the skills of academic research in philosophy, including the use of traditional and new media resources, as well as in the academic practices and styles common in the discipline
  • to foster in students a deep comprehension of contemporary cultures and their philosophical roots, for the purposes of constructive dialogue, sound critical discernment, and participation in the work of Catholic evangelization
