LSU offers the MA in philosophy, with thesis and non-thesis options. Requirements for the thesis option include 30 semester hours of graduate credit, with no more than six hours of thesis credit; a reading knowledge of the language required for adequate research on the thesis topic; a thesis; and an oral examination on the thesis.

Requirements for the non-thesis option include 36 semester hours, of which as many as 12 hours may be taken outside the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies; reading knowledge of a foreign language or some department-approved alternative to foreign language competency; and an oral exam based on work that has been accomplished in the program.

The department does not offer a graduate degree in religious studies; students interested in such might wish to explore the options offered through the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts program.
