Graduate Program in Philosophy

Loyola Marymount University’s M.A. Program in Philosophy provides an opportunity for students to acquire a solid grasp of the history of Philosophy, both Western and Eastern, and to pursue specialized studies of a range of philosophical issues and major figures. Our program is designed for students who seek the comprehensive background and training required for admission to and success in a Ph.D. program in Philosophy, as well as for those who wish to complement their studies in related disciplines with the Master of Arts in Philosophy. A special feature of our graduate program is the opportunity for students to acquire the skills associated with effective teaching as they broaden and deepen their philosophical understanding.
