There is no philosophy graduate program at the University of Maine. However a student may study philosophy in the Master of Liberal Studies program. Graduates of the Philosophy Department may choose to continue their studies in an interdisciplinary program by pursuing a Master of Liberal Studies (MALS) on a part-time or full-time basis.
The program is based on the assumption that technical competence and specialized training are best employed in combination with knowledge traditionally fostered by the liberal arts and sciences. It offers an alternative to traditional graduate programs by emphasizing the integration of knowledge. Through core seminars, an individualized program of study, and the completion of a master project, the student’s ability to explore major issues and integrate knowledge from several disciplines is enhanced.
Some undergraduates may be interested in pursuing a five-year B.A. in Philosophy and Masters of Business Administration.
