Dual-Degree MA Application Info

You can earn an MA in philosophy only in conjunction with another graduate degree program at the University of Denver. We typically see religious studies as a complementary master's degree; however, you may also apply to another pre-approved discipline within the University in conjunction with our MA program.

You must already be enrolled in this other program before applying to our master's program in philosophy.
