Founded in 2005, the Masters Degree in Philosophy and the Arts at Stony Brook University
explores the intersections between philosophy and art, offering a terminal MA to students
of philosophy, practicing artists, critics, and those with an interest in the philosophical
implications of art as well as 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 and Brooklyn. 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.
