The MA in Philosophy can be completed as a thesis-based degree or as a course-based degree. While prospective students have to apply for either the thesis-based or the course-based program, it is possible to change the program based on recommendation or approval by the department. The course-based MA program normally consists of the completion of *24 in coursework, including a capping project.Required coursework depends on the area of specialization and the undergraduate background of the student.  It normally includes six graduate-level courses (*18), taken in the first two semesters of study, one (*3) graduate-level Directed Reading course (which may be taken in the Fall, Winter, or Spring semester), and one (*3) capstone research project (Phil 900).
