Overview

Our goal during the Philosophy Bachelor Degree at the University of Prince Edward Island is to provide a nurturing, respectful, and engaging environment to help you craft well-articulated, well-defended, autonomous thought. As with anything, the more you put into philosophy, the more you will get out of it. We love voracious readers of primary texts.

We love critical, creative, and reflective thinkers. We love those who recognize that philosophical argumentation requires careful support. We especially love those who can write clearly, succinctly, and offer poignant illustrations. If these are traits you love as well, it may be time to give philosophy a whirl.
