Considerable expertise exists in ethical and political philosophy, logic, metaphysics, and epistemology, as well as in the philosophy of science, the philosophy of religion, the philosophy of mind, phenomenology, existentialism, aesthetics, and hermeneutics.

The MA program in Philosophy at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, has a strong emphasis on writing. The program is designed so that it may be completed in one academic year (three semesters) of full-time study. The program can also be taken part time, in which case completion is longer.
