The intent of the M.A. Program is to provide advanced training in philosophy, usually for graduates of Honours Bachelor's programs in Philosophy. Through course work students are exposed to a wide range of philosophical literature, both modern and historical, technical and discursive. In addition, a required research project in the summer term ensures that students develop strong skills in philosophical research and writing.
