Philosophy

M.A.

  • The MA in Philosophy at the University of Windsor focuses on studies in social and political critique, broadly construed, and in reasoning and argumentation.
  • Our program prepares students for further scholarly pursuits such as doctoral studies in philosophy or law school, and for careers in public service, public relations, policy analysis, education, or research.
  • It provides resources for a deeply engaged intellectual, professional, and civic life.
  • Our low teacher-student ratio ensures close interaction and promotes collegiality.
  • The majority of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric’s (CRRAR’s) current members are philosophers. 
  • The University of Windsor’s Philosophy department is recognized worldwide as the centre of research in informal logic and argumentation. See www.uwindsor.ca/crrar
  • Students can expand their formal philosophical education by participating in the department’s lively in-house speakers series, as well as the external speaker series, and the student-organized Philosophy Club.
