Philosophy majors at UC and certain other universities are eligible to apply for the Philosophy 4+1 Program, which results in a BA and MA in Philosophy earned from a total of five years of coursework.
Please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Peter Langland-Hassan, with any questions or if you are interested in applying for the Philosophy 4+1 Program.
The Philosophy Department does not ordinarily admit students interested in earning a terminal MA degree; the focus is on the PhD program. However, we occasionally make exceptions and admit MA students, most often for those interested in Philosophy graduate work who are already members of the UC community.
Please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Peter Langland-Hassan, for more information.
