Wilfrid Laurier is in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
The Department of Philosophy has 11 faculty members. Our students remark on the collegiality and friendliness of the Department, and the accessibility of faculty to its MA students, especially faculty mentorship of student MRP projects.
Our MA program in Philosophy was launched in Fall 2007. It is unique in Canada in its thematic focus: “Self, Agency, Community.” Seminars engage questions about nature of the self, its relation to others, and the nature and significance of human agency. While this broad theme allows us to locate connections and contiguities in our philosophical work across traditional subfields that might otherwise go unnoticed, it does not in actuality constrain student interests or projects. You’ll find that both faculty and students work on a very broad array of topics.
