Guided Philosophical Research


What is the purpose of the GPR?

The GPR was introduced in order to integrate graduate students of Philosophy into the academic culture of the Department of Philosophy. Graduate students must be considered as contributors to the academic culture of the Department of Philosophy. As such, the participation of graduate students in the various activities of the Department is beneficial to the personal academic growth of the graduate students. It is also an opportunity for graduate students to become familiar with the research and teaching strengths of the members of the Department.  

Such integration will foster not only a closer interaction with the faculty and other students, but also a broader awareness of what is going on outside the Department of Philosophy. The Department serves as a liaison between the graduate students and the outside world. They will be informed of national and international conferences, scholarship programs, and research fellowship programs--among other things.

Ultimately, the GPR is designed to guide graduate students in Philosophy to cope up with the challenges during the initial stages of their thesis/dissertation proposal writing.

NB: Only applicable to graduate students in philosophy whose first enrolment was in the 1st Semester of AY 2014-2015.
