Philosophy Programs and Schools
Philosophy is the study of the most fundamental questions that arise in our reflection on us and our place in the natural world. Most students who major in philosophy study it for its intrinsic interest. Philosophy as an academic field of study is comprised of five major sections, including ethics, logic, aesthetics, metaphysics and epistemology. Master's degree programs in philosophy can focus on one concentration area or provide an overview that prepares students for doctorate-level training in the field.
