UBC’s Department of Philosophy offers two graduate degree programs: a Master of Arts (MA) and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

Program Overview

The Department of Philosophy houses a diverse group of internationally celebrated thinkers with broad interests in the analytic tradition and increasing expansion into non-western traditions. Members of the department are engaged in a range of research areas, including the philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language, aesthetics, ethics, social/political philosophy, logic, Asian philosophy and the history of philosophy.

Graduate students not only work closely with faculty members, but also benefit from interaction with fellow graduate students. The Department offers a supportive environment full of intellectual stimulation and social events. Students are encouraged to take on teaching experiences and participate in the broader community of philosophers.
