Philosophical Resources (M.A.)

The MAPR program in philosophy is designed primarily for Jesuit scholastics, although it is open to others who seek to enhance their philosophical knowledge but do not satisfy the stand-alone MA program’s entrance requirement of 24 undergraduate credits in philosophy. The degree requires 36 hours of course work in philosophy for 12 courses. A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 in coursework. Only six credits of 2.0 (C) will be credited toward the degree. Twelves credits of C eliminate a student from the program.
