Each year the MA Philosophy Program sponsors a scholarly conference on Christian philosophy. Philosophers and scholars from around the world meet for several days to discuss the work of an important Catholic philosopher or an important philosophical topic or school in the Catholic philosophical tradition. Whenever possible, graduate courses are offered in conjunction with the conferences to augment the courses and sometimes to allow graduate student participation in the conference.
In addition to the annual conference on Christian philosophy the MA Philosophy Program sometimes sponsors or co-sponsors an additional conference or colloquium on an important theme or person.
