Study at UQAM

When you come to UQAM to study philosophy, you're joining a dynamic teaching and research community. The Department offers a strong foundation of undergraduate studies in the major fields of philosophy as well as advanced training through our master's and doctorate programs that lead students toward doing research and teaching philosophy. A reflection of how Montréal is at the crossroads of European and North American cultures, so the training offered by the Department of Philosophy is at the intersection of the continental and analytic traditions.

The Department is also home to the Canada Research Chair in the Theory of Knowledge and to the UNESCO Chair in Studies of the Philosophic Foundations of Justice in Democratic Society. These Chairs and the various research teams make our Department an active research site that attracts international researchers, post-doctoral students and prestigious speakers.
