The graduate program, including the M.A. in Applied Philosophy and Ethics (MAAPE) and the Graduate Certificate in Professional Ethics, is central to the mission of the Philosophy Department and to our vision of its future. The MAAPE is a new and flourishing program, with over sixty students receiving their MA during its first six years, The MAAPE has become nationally and internationally competitive, attracting students from Maine, Georgia, California, Mexico, Bangladesh, and Texas. The M.A. in Applied Philosophy and Ethics prepares students to apply successfully for admission to Ph.D. granting departments (in philosophy and other disciplines), to teach in 2-year colleges and high schools, and to enter professions in business, nonprofits, and public agencies through a strong grounding in philosophy and in the analysis and application of ethical theories in professional and community settings. By fostering a love of learning, an appreciation of the value of critical and reflective thinking, and a collaborative intellectual community; we help prepare our students to become engaged, reflective citizens and lifelong learners while preparing them for graduate study or careers in government, law, the non-profit sector, business, or education.
