Philosophy Programs Information

The Department of Philosophy offers a BA and HBA in Philosophy, as well as double majors with Psychology (BA and HBA) and HBA double majors with English, French, History, Indigenous Learning, and Political Science. The Department also offers minors in Philosophy and in Professional Ethics. Philosophy programs are also offered concurrently with a BEd from the Department of Undergraduate Studies in Education.

There are many interesting possibilities of combining philosophy with courses in other departments; for instance one can study the philosophy of a period and also its history or its literature; one can study art or science and also the philosophy of art (aesthetics) or the philosophy of science. A double major or combined honours program permits a more thorough interdisciplinary exploration of appropriate themes.

Programs and courses should be chosen carefully, in consultation with the department. For the grades required in major and in honours programs, see Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities Faculty Regulations.
