Important Note for 2013-2014

Philosophy and Western Religions will not be accepting any new students for the 2013-2014 academic year.

The programs in Philosophy and Western Religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) are aimed at students who are interested in studying the intertwined intellectual worlds of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and the long history of the interaction between philosophy and religion that determined the intellectual physiognomy of the West. Their interdisciplinary structure avoids the unduly narrow approach of undergraduate programs restricted to a single academic discipline and allows students to combine language acquisition with closely related courses in Philosophy, Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies and Religious Studies.

Students can complete a Minor Concentration (18 credits), a Major Concentration, which has two options, one with and the other without language requirements (36 credits), an Honours Program (60 credits) and a Joint Honours component (36 credits) in Philosophy and Western Religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam).
