Welcome to the Department of Philosophy! We offer a variety of courses that can complement any degree, whether you want a career in the medical professions, are thinking of going to law school, or want to become an engineer, computer scientist, writer or artist. We also offer exciting undergraduate and graduate programs, including a BA Honors program, a new Undergraduate Certificate in Ethics, and a new Course-Based MA program. If you are new to Philosophy and are wondering what philosophers study and what you can do with a Philosophy degree, you can look at this brief guide to the field of philosophy and its uses.
Our department is home to many exceptional researchers and dedicated teachers. We are always happy to advise you about your courses, suggest readings about a topic that particularly interests you, or chat about some philosophical question that’s keeping you up at night. Come to the second floor of Assiniboia Hall and talk to one of your professors, attend a meeting of the Undergraduate Philosophical Association or the Graduate Publication Support Group, or come to one of our events. Our talks are always open to everyone!
