We offer M.A. (thesis optional) programmes. Currently, most MA students elect the course-only option, which is especially appropriate for students entering with an interdisciplinary background.

The Department of Philosophy is an active, mid-sized department that has broad interests in philosophical issues within the Anglo-American analytic tradition. Members of the department are engaged in research in philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language, aesthetics, ethics, social/political philosophy, logic, Indian philosophy and the history of philosophy.
