|Choose 6 of the 7 courses||18|
Degree Specific Credits: 37
Required Cumulative GPA: 3.0
The Philosophy Department offers an option to pursue an accelerated M.A. in Environmental Philosophy for select students. Such students can be admitted into graduate-level coursework during their senior undergraduate year or when they have completed a minimum of 105 credits and demonstrated their ability to pursue graduate work. Students enrolled in the accelerated M.A. may count up to 9 credits earned in 400-level or 500-level courses toward the M.A. All credits transferred are subject to the policy on transfer credits (C5.000), with particular attention to the importance of students completing the “graduate increment” in 400-level courses designated UG, taken to fulfill a requirement for a Master’s degree.
Note: The sequence of seminars may occasionally get disrupted by sabbaticals or other changes in faculty schedules. As the core of our degree, students will always need whichever 5 philosophy seminars are offered in their two years in the program.
