UIS offers students a completely ONLINE Option!

As of Fall 2006, it is possible for UIS students to pursue a Master’s Degree with a focus in Philosophy completely online. This is the first time UIS has ever offered the opportunity to pursue a Master’s Degree in an online-only format. Online students who wish to pursue this option must take the required course INO 501 via Elluminate software.

Students who wish to do this are advised to explore the UIS Philosophy website to learn more about their program, or contact Dr. Peter Boltuc or the department for more information.
