Philosophy The main purpose of this concentration is to help the student develop the skills to do philosophy from a Christian worldview. The attitudes and character traits of a Christian philosopher will be fostered by departmental activities, professional modeling, and teaching techniques. Skills necessary for the craft of philosophy will be developed by equipping the student to think critically, conduct high-level philosophical research, and interact with the broader philosophical community. The program is aimed at developing the ability to do philosophy in various ministry programs, such as parachurch and local church apologetics as well as preparing the student for further graduate work in fields such as philosophy, ethics, religious studies, law, political science, and theology. Collectively, graduates of our program should be providing visionary leadership, articulating a Christian worldview in various cultural contexts at Christian colleges, in seminaries, and in parachurch ministries, for example and should be penetrating the secular university and venues of popular culture, such as art, media, and music. Therefore, many graduates will qualify for admission to competitive doctoral programs in philosophy, ethics, religious studies, and other fields. As a result of this program, the student will achieve the following learning outcomes (in addition to the core M.A. learning outcomes):. Graduates will be able to explain the importance of sustaining a vibrant intellectual life as part of an ongoing commitment to following Christ.. Graduates will be able to summarize and critique, in written form, professional philosophical literature published in specialized philosophical journals and with academic presses, and will be able to relate the material in professional philosophical literature to various aspects of a Christian worldview, for use either in a professional academic setting, in the local church, or through engagement with popular culture.. With respect to the history or current state of discipline, graduates will be able to articulate: a. three distinct normative ethical theories, namely utilitarianism, deontology, and virtue ethics, and the fundamental disagreements underlying disputes about beginning- and end-oflife ethics; b. three theories of properties (realism, nominalism, and trope theory), the distinction between libertarian and compatibilist theories of free will, and the distinctions among substance dualism, property dualism, and physicalism; c. the basic contours of a correspondence theory of truth and a foundationalist theory of the structure of knowledge; d. two classical arguments for the existence of God, and the basic contours of the challenges to Christianity from the coherence of the Incarnation and the Trinity, from God's foreknowledge, and from evil. These learning outcomes will be measured through the evaluation of a portfolio submitted by and an oral exam taken by each student during the semester after which he or she will graduate from the M.A. Philosophy program. Details of the portfolio, oral exams, and how they will be evaluated can be found in the Talbot Philosophy Department office, and details about these requirements will be sent to students during their first semester enrolled in the program. Reduction and Transfer Guidelines for Philosophy Concentration Students with satisfactory undergraduate parallel content in philosophy will be considered for course reduction. All requests for course reduction are subject to departmental approval on a case by case basis. Students seeking course reduction must have earned at least a "B" grade. Students may only transfer courses that are parallel in content and taken from accredited graduate schools and seminaries. Request for transfer of courses should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar with prior approval from the department. Students must complete in residence a minimum of 4 credits in the Philosophy concentration.

5 Biola University 5 TTPH 684 Philosophy of Religion TTPH 685 Philosophical Theology Philosophy electives 6 General electives Total Credits Spiritual This concentration is designed as a personal growth and academic degree. It is an intensive, integrative program within the Institute for Spiritual at Talbot School of Theology, designed to equip men and women for the ministry of discipleship and spiritual formation in general, in the local church, and for further academic training in spiritual formation. The program is designed entirely around promoting growth in the believer's inner life of faith and prayer with God in the context of a shared community and developed knowledge-base in the Word. Because the program is experiential and theoretical in nature with respect to spiritual growth and the dynamic processes involved, the M.A. Concentration in Spiritual draws upon an interdisciplinary faculty from both Talbot and Rosemead School of Psychology. It includes both in-depth theoretical and integrative coursework, employing the creation disciplines such as theology, philosophy, psychology and education as well as experiential-relational soul work in classes and co-curricular requirements to aid in understanding the spiritual life mentoring. Note also that this more academic M.A. with a concentration in Spiritual is to be distinguished from the more professional M.A. in Spiritual and Soul Care, the latter being fashioned more along the lines of an Apprentice Training Model which includes training, supervision and service components in spiritual direction and mentoring. As a result of this program, students will:. Develop the PLOs having to do with biblical integration (#) and spiritual formation (#) to a higher level of mastery.
