4.0 credits are required, including at least 1.0 credits at the 300/400 level.

  1. At least one of PHL101H5 or PHL102H5 or PHL103H5 or PHL113H5 or PHL105Y5 or PHL233H5;
  2. At least one of PHL255H5 or PHL355H5;
  3. At least one of PHL350H5 or PHL357H5 or PHL358H5;
  4. 1.5 credits in AST or BIO or ERS or CHM or PSY or PHY;
  5. 1.0 credits in any other PHL course.

Students cannot use more than 1.0 credits from 100-level PHL courses for program completion credit.

Students also cannot use PHL204H5 or PHL277Y5 (or in combination with either PHL275H5 or PHL265H5) for program completion credit.

Where courses exclude each other, at most one of them may be counted for credit toward philosophy program completion.

All 200-level courses, with the exception of PHL204H5, PHL245H5 and PHL247H5, have the prerequisite that the student has completed at least 4.0 credits at the university. This prerequisite is waived for students who are taking (or have taken) a 100-level course in Philosophy. There are no other prerequisites for any 200-level courses.
All 300-level courses, with the exception of PHL344H5, 347H5, have a prerequisite of 1.5 credits in Philosophy. It is strongly recommended that students prepare for 300-level courses by taking two of the following: PHL103H5 or PHL113H5 or PHL200H5 or PHL210Y5 or PHL245H5 or PHL265H5 or PHL275H5. Some 300-level courses have specific prerequisites or recommended preparation, as described in the course descriptions. Students who do not meet the prerequisite for a particular course but believe that they have adequate preparation should consult the Undergraduate Advisor concerning entry to the course.
The prerequisite for 400-level courses, except PHL451H5, is 4.5 credits in Philosophy.
When choosing your courses, keep in mind that not all courses listed are offered every year. Some courses required to complete a program might be offered only every other year. For courses offered during the current year, consult the UTM Timetable website.
