COVID-19 Update

Following public health regulations, facilities at Carleton University have reopened and in-person courses (as per the winter 2022 schedule) and activities have resumed as of Monday, February 7, 2022. For more information, please visit the COVID-19 info page.


The Department of Philosophy’s track record of award-winning teaching and excellence in research helps shape its strong undergraduate program and its distinctive and robust two-year MA program. A major focal point is interdisciplinary research and teaching in the following areas: moral, social, political philosophy, philosophy of mind, cognitive sciences, language, knowledge, and history of philosophy. These areas are exemplified in the Department’s strong ties to the Ethics and Public Affairs (EPAF) PhD program and to the MA and PhD programs in the Institute for Cognitive Science.
