Welcome to the website of the Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy

Instituted in 1992, the Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy is an interdepartmental program of doctoral study at the University of Toronto, jointly administered by the Department of Philosophy, the Centre for Medieval Studies, and the Department of Classics. A student in the Collaborative Program is registered in one of these academic units, but may draw upon the resources of any unit. The University of Toronto has a long tradition of excellence in the study of ancient and medieval philosophy, and the Program trains students to carry on the tradition.
