DescriptionPhilosophy is a particular way, or ways, of thinking. It emphasizes clarity in expression (both written and verbal expression) and rigor in argument. The BA in philosophy is not a professional qualification. Beyond its intrinsic interest, the study of philosophy may prepare students from graduate work in Philosophy or for work in a variety of other fields -- law and business, for example. As the interdisciplinary discipline par excellence, philosophy also maintains and encourages ties with other fields, e.g., Psychology, Linguistics, History, Political Science, Mathematics, Physics, Biology.

The McGill Department of Philosophy has a continuing commitment to providing an intensive yet broad-based philosophical education. The interests and work of members of the Department are wide ranging both in subject matter and historical era and are supplemented by Associated faculty from English, Jewish Studies, Religious Studies, and Psychiatry. These interests are reflected in the wide range of courses which are offered.
