Why study philosophy at the University of Denver?
The department of philosophy at the University of Denver offers an MA in philosophy, but only when done through the university's flexible dual-degree program in conjunction with an MA in another approved discipline. The philosophy faculty places a strong emphasis on research and personal interaction with students. Our program is designed to meet the needs of two kinds of students — those wishing to prepare for doctoral work in philosophy and those seeking an individualized course of study with a more interdisciplinary focus. Areas of concentration include the history of Western thought, interpretive and critical theory, practical philosophy, meta- philosophy, and studies in creative and critical reasoning about human nature and values.
