The Philosophy Department offers a variety of programs designed to meet the needs of different students.
An honours program provides an opportunity for the in-depth study of philosophy.
A combined (or "double") honours program allows a student to combine an in-depth study of philosophy and some other discipline (e.g., economics, biology, religion & culture, history, english or sociology). Information on other disciplines at Wilfrid Laurier University is available through the WLU home page.
An honours or a double honours program is the normal requirement for graduate work in philosophy.
Students who do not complete a major or an honours degree, but wish to have some concentration in philosophy, may complete a minor (a minor in philosophy requires 3 credits in philosophy, at least 2 of which must be at the senior level).
