Courses on offer

Please note that many courses offered by the Department of Philosophy have limited enrolment.

For courses cross-listed with other departments, see the menu item "Cross-listed Courses".

You can access the class schedule for 2017-18 now on Minerva.

Please note:

Due to recent changes to course numbering in the Department of Philosophy, former 500 level courses are now being offered as 600 level courses. These courses will fulfill the 500-level credit requirements. Please note the following policy regarding enrolment of undergraduate students in 600-level courses (Graduate courses).

Policy: An undergraduate student will be permitted to take 600-level courses subject to the following conditions:

• The student has a minimum CGPA of 3.3.

• The student is in U3 or higher.

• The professor of the course and the program adviser or the director of the undergraduate program provide written approval supporting the request.

• A maximum of 6 credits of 600-level courses are allowed toward the degree. • The actual course number appears on the transcript.

• The course evaluation methods and grading standards are the same for all students, whether graduate or undergraduate.

• The regulations and practices of the Faculty of Arts are also applied to such a course.

See here for full policy. 

A copy of the application form is available at the Arts OASIS counter.
