The primary research interests of the Faculty of Philosophy are in the history of philosophy, metaphysics, contemporary European philosophy and its historical antecedents. Current issues and controversies in such areas as ethics, dialectics, epistemology, phenomenology, philosophical economics and the philosophy of law are also particular strengths within the Faculty. Students with a wide range of thematic and research interests can be accommodated by the Faculty.

The Faculty offers a two-year Master of Arts Program, with two possible tracks. The first choice is the Thesis-Track option which requires four research seminars in the first year, and the writing and defence of a 100 page thesis in the second year. The second choice is the Non-Thesis-Track option which requires 6 seminars over the two years, and a 50 page research paper. Masters students are expected to demonstrate thorough research skills and to cultivate an ability to present clear and concise philosophical arguments.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Admission to the M.A. program requires 120 credits of philosophy, such as a B.Ph. or a B.A. with Honours in Philosophy from a recognized institution, with a grade average of no less than A- (or its equivalent). Though academic performance is an important consideration, the prospective student’s entire profile will be taken into consideration when evaluating the application. Students from connecting backgrounds require a minimum of 90 credits of philosophy to be eligible for the masters program, and a qualifying year may be added to the student’s program.
