Course content

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.
