This is a two-year program with a Dissertation. This program offers courses in both Indian and Western Philosophy at two levels. Every student must complete the core courses in the classical schools of Indian and Western Philosophy, Ethics, and Logic at the first basic level. At the advanced level, students can opt for courses in the various fields of philosophy such as Advanced courses in Indian Philosophy, Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Language, both Indian and Western Aesthetics, etc.
Reading courses are a unique component of our MA program. A reading course allows a student to study a topic/area of her interest with a faculty. Reading courses are typically one on one studies. In a reading course, the student and the faculty together design both the course and methods of evaluation. Reading courses are on par with any elective course.
Every student has to submit a dissertation to complete the MA program. The department will allot a supervisor to each student after considering their areas of interest and the availability of the faculty at the beginning of the second year. The students are expected to complete a course with their supervisor on the topic they chose to write the dissertation. The dissertation will be evaluated by a committee.
