Founded in 2005, the Masters Degree in Philosophy with a focus on the Arts and Aesthetics
Stony Brook University explores the intersections between philosophy and art, offering a terminal MA to theorists,
practicing artists, critics, and those with an interest in the philosophical implications
of art history and contemporary artistic practices.
No other program with a comparable emphasis exists in the New York area.
Our seminars are characterized by close attention to specific texts in the history
of philosophy and innovative approaches to traditional and contemporary art, drawing
on arts venues and resources in New York City. Stony Brook philosophy department faculty
who specialize in or have strong research interests in aesthetics, phenomenology,
the history of philosophy, psychoanalysis, and technoscience teach M.A. seminars,
with additional faculty support from relevant departments. The program also attracts
renowned visiting scholars and artists to teach courses and give lectures.
The Philosophy Department of Stony Brook University has been internationally recognized
for its focus on contemporary European philosophy and its interdisciplinary, pluralist
orientation. To those interested in pursuing a rigorous and rewarding post-graduate
degree, a Master of Arts in Philosophy at Stony Brook University offers courses, resources,
and mentoring from distinguished faculty as well as a track record of excellent placement
in Philosophy PhD programs and arts-related employment (e.g. curatorial work in galleries
and museums, etc.) for our graduating students.
