Philosophy study field aims to look into the human problems related to existence, knowledge, minds, values and other general and fundamental issues. These problems are considered based on rational argumentation using systematic approaches. Philosophy strives to acquire knowledge by rational means about the issues that are difficult for empirical investigations. This study field has three main sub-fields: natural philosophy, moral philosophy and metaphysical philosophy. Philosophy has many other branches including epistemology, logic, metaphysics, axiology (value theory), moral and political philosophy, aesthetics, and philosophy of language, philosophy of law, philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of science.

The free-standing M.A. program is intended for students who wish to develop an advanced competence in Philosophy. Some of our free-standing M.A. students do not plan to go on to Ph.D. programs in Philosophy. Other free-standing M.A. students do plan to go on to Ph.D. programs in Philosophy, but do not yet have the background in Philosophy to win admission to a Ph.D. program; for these students, the free-standing M.A. program provides the opportunity to begin graduate studies by taking classes alongside the students enrolled in our Ph.D. program.
