Welcome to the Department of Philosophy

At the heart of critical thinking and a vital part of a well-rounded liberal education, philosophy is the rational pursuit of true answers to the most fundamental questions about such things as human nature, the universe, good, or the existence of God, just to name but a few. Liberating the mind from the slavery of ignorance, error, assumptions, or the superficial; this is the Department of Philosophy at St. Jerome’s University.


We offer a variety of undergraduate programs and courses that are taught by both St. Jerome’s University faculty and faculty members from the University of Waterloo.


Students who want to satisfy their general education requirements without majoring in Philosophy are welcome as well.
