The Philosophy Department at Brock University and its Master of Arts program are unique in Canada. It is the only philosophy program to offer a double emphasis in Contemporary European thought and Eastern philosophy. Since its inception three decades ago, the program has sought to acquaint students, though especially graduate students, with a global philosophical heritage drawn from both the West and the East. The natural outgrowth of this double focus has been a deepening appreciation for Comparative Philosophy. The diversity of interests spawned by the interaction of philosophical traditions has produced a dynamic environment that continues to attract students from across Canada and the world.
