There are two options for the M.A.:

Students take six one-term courses and write a 10,000 research paper over the summer (which may, but need not, develop work from one of their courses).

Memorial's Department of Philosophy offers a thriving intellectual community where students are invited to explore the nature and problems of human existence and human thought. The interests of the Philosophy faculty are wide-ranging with a particular concentration in the historical aspects of philosophy. Considerable expertise exists in ethical and political philosophy, logic, metaphysics, and epistemology, as well as in the philosophy of science, the philosophy of religion, the philosophy of mind, phenomenology, existentialism, aesthetics, and hermeneutics.

The Department encourages student participation in regular discussion groups and colloquia. Recent guest lecturers featured in the Department's international speakers series include Richard Rorty (University of Virginia), Jane Heal (Cambridge), Günter Wohlfart (Wuppertal), Carl Hausman (Pennsylvania State), Th. C. W. Oudemans (Leiden), Daniel Dennett (TUFTS), Gunther Mensching (Hannover), Guy Debrock (Nijmegen), and Roland Faber (Vienna).

The MA program in Philosophy has a strong emphasis on writing. The program is designed so that it may be completed in one academic year (three semesters) of full-time study. The program can also be taken part time, in which case completion is longer.

The Windsor M.A. program is small and offers the benefit of frequent and close contact with professors and fellow students. Our aim is to give our students solid individualized M.A. instruction--whether their intention is to continue elsewhere for a Ph.D., or to spend a year or two deepening their understanding of philosophy.

We have three avenues to the M.A. degree:
(1) eight graduate courses
(2) six graduate courses plus a major paper;
(3) four graduate courses plus a thesis (with permission)

All students must take the departmental seminar and pass a Master's examination which is based on it. We offer six graduate courses per year. Up to two courses may also be taken from outside of Philosophy, but this option is available only for students in the major paper or course-based streams. Course offerings at the graduate level reflect the research interests of our faculty. A major paper (approximately 40-60 pages plus bibliography) topic often grows out of coursework. By contrast, a thesis topic and committee must be established early on, and a proposal of 300-500 words plus bibliography approved in the first or second full-time semester. Theses are typically 80-120 pages plus bibliography.

We have faculty with research interests in Argumentation Theory, Contemporary European Philosophy, Epistemology, Ethics, Feminist Philosophy, Informal Logic, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science, Rhetoric, and Social and Political Philosophy.

The Master of Arts in Ancient Philosophy is an interdisciplinary program jointly sponsored by the Departments of Philosophy and Classical Studies that combines graduate seminars in ancient philosophy with language courses in Greek and Latin.
The overall objective of the program is to prepare students for doctoral research, whether through a Philosophy or Classics Department, by providing them with the philosophical and philological skills necessary for conducting research in Ancient Philosophy.

Normally students who graduate from the program will be able to read at the 4000-level in at least one of the two languages and at the 2000-level in the other language. In addition, students will acquire graduate level of knowledge in at least one of the major ancient philosophical traditions (Plato, Aristotle, Stoics, and Epicureans), as well as a critical awareness of the main philosophical problems that shape the broader discipline.

The Master of Arts program offers students in a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by writing a thesis and successfully completing a limited number of courses. The number and details of the courses are determined within the first semester of the student's program.

Students may complete their degrees in either a full- or part-time capacity. Full-time students complete a 24-month program while part-time students complete a 48-month program. Part-time students will normally complete all required course work in the first 24 months, with the subsequent months committed to continued research and production of the Thesis.

Although degrees are awarded in specific disciplines, the program is administered centrally by the School of Graduate Studies, rather than by individual departments or Faculties.

Graduate degrees traditionally have been awarded for the successful completion of a satisfactory Thesis. The Thesis route expresses the fundamental tradition of academic scholarship. It also relates to the University’s undergraduate programs, because the creation of a Thesis in any discipline calls for a range of skills which are central to the liberal education tradition, including analysis and synthesis of ideas, empirical investigations, the construction and articulation of arguments, and writing skills.

Because of the nature of the M.A. program, the Thesis forms the central requirement of the program. At the master’s level, a Thesis involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. Consequently, it is necessary for a candidate to establish contact with potential supervisors prior to application for admission. Candidates seeking potential supervisors should contact either the relevant academic department or the School of Graduate Studies.
