As of Tuesday, March 17, we discontinue any in-person teaching, including in-person exams, for the rest of the semester. All Philosophy courses will continue but will move to online/remote instruction and take-home exams. Students: please check your SFU email accounts and CANVAS course pages for information from your instructors about how your individual classes will be proceeding.  

  • The Philosophy department's offices will be closed until further notice, but instructors, TAs and staff are available by email. 
  • Undergraduate advising, enrollment issues, declarations, and graduation checks: email and include your student ID# 
  • See our Contact page and People page on this website for email information for staff and faculty. 
  • The Philosophy department has also set up an emergency response team for handling issues relating to COVID-19 and for reporting purposes for our Philosophy students and faculty. The response team can be reached by email at:

Please notify us via that email address if:

  • You have contacted 811, and are self-isolating because you are experiencing symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19
  • You are getting tested for COVID-19.  If you know the results, please also report whether it was negative or positive.
  • You have concerns which require immediate action (not related to courses - please contact your instructors for that)

Stay safe, everyone!
