DoodleBob Posted April 3, 2019 Share Posted April 3, 2019 Dear again the grad cafe philosophy community, I am curious about your opinion of a masters area of interest and PhD admissions. I have heard (from a professor) that a masters AOI does not matter for PhD admissions. What matters is demonstrating your ability to produce quality work in philosophy. For example, your AOI and thesis is in X, but that does not matter towards your addmisions prospects for a program that specializes in Y. As I have lurked here on the gradcafe, I have read advice that this is not the case. What is your opinion on this? How much does an MA AOI matter for PhD admissions?
