You + Award-Winning Professors = Philosophy that Matters
We are proud to offer an MA program in Philosophy, and a PhD program in Philosophy. As a vibrant, well established graduate studies department with strengths across an unusually wide range of areas, we also offer a specialized PhD program in Applied Philosophy, the only one of it's kind in Canada.
We give strong support to our students on the job market, whether academic, alt-academic, or outside academia. We encourage students who want to apply philosophical thinking beyond academia. Our graduates go on to work in healthcare, government, law, corporate and academic careers.
We have a lively and engaged graduate community, which has been running its own graduate conference series for over 20 years. We also host monthly socials where grad students and faculty get a chance to interact informally.
