Graduate Courses

The Department of Philosophy regularly offers graduate seminars in each of the following areas: the history of Western philosophy, theoretical and applied ethics, the philosophy of language, logic and science, epistemology and metaphysics. The full listing of our courses can be found in the Graduate Calendar.

Each year we offer a variety of seminars so that graduate students are introduced to the most recent scholarship in a range of areas of Philosophy. You may use the links on the right to determine the course offerings for a particular academic year, many of the courses listed are or will be linked to an electronic version of the course outlines as they become available.

As a legacy of our association with the University of Guelph and Wilfrid Laurier University, there remains a course-sharing agreement whereby graduate students at any of the three institutions may take courses at any of the others without charge.

For further details regarding the M.A. and Ph.D. programs, please consult the links on the right.
