General Information about the MLS in Philosophy
As they are about to finish the Young India Fellowship, the YIF, YIF graduates can apply to stay on for another year to work towards a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (Hons.) degree – the MLS.
Students pursuing a MLS serve as graduate assistants to the faculty member who has agreed to work with them and work on a MLS Thesis in Philosophy under the faculty member’s guidance. As graduate assistants, they may be employed as Teaching Assistants in Philosophy courses and assist with the faculty member’s research. The MLS Thesis in Philosophy is organized just like a Capstone Thesis in Philosophy and is the centerpiece of the MLS in Philosophy. The requirements of the former thus broadly correspond with those of the latter and are listed below.
