Overview

What you will study

Philosophy poses general questions about reality, knowledge, reasoning, language, and conduct. The four main branches are metaphysics (What is the ultimate nature of reality? What really exists and what is mere appearance?); epistemology (What, if anything, can be known and how?); logic (What are the principles of correct reasoning?); and ethics (What is moral value? And what moral values should we adopt?). Other, more specific, branches of philosophy address questions concerning the nature of art, law, medicine, politics, religion, and the sciences.

Many of the offerings at the Philosophy MA program from New York University are of wide significance and helpful in developing the capacity to assess arguments and analyze ideas. Our small classes give ample opportunity for discussion and allow close consultation on writing.
