Prospective Students

Admissions for the Accelerated M.A. in Philosophy (AMP in Philosophy)

Students will typically apply for AMP in Philosophy in Spring Semester of their junior year.  If they are accepted, they will be notified in that same semester and in time for them to enroll in appropriate classes at the start of their senior year so as to enable them to complete AMP in one additional year beyond their senior year.

AMP in Philosophy is open only to University of Arizona undergraduates majoring either in Philosophy or Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Law.

AMP in Philosophy is independent of the University of Arizona Philosophy Ph.D. program.  Students completing AMP in Philosophy will be given no special consideration relative to other applicants if they choose to apply to the doctoral program.

For questions, contact Mark Timmons, Director of the AMP program


To apply for AMP in Philosophy, students must:

1)  Meet the Admissions Requirements established by the Graduate College.

2)  Submit to the Department of Philosophy via the UA Graduate College online application site:

  • Two letters of recommendation from professors with whom they have studied
  • A writing sample
