"I have had the privilege of speaking at Tyndale University College, and I have found their philosophy faculty and students to be first-rate. This engaged community takes philosophical reflection and Christian commitment very seriously. This makes Tyndale a unique place in all of Canada to study undergrad philosophy and to make a singular impact for God's kingdom there and around the world. I wholeheartedly recommend their remarkable program!"
Paul Copan, Ph.D., Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics,

"I visited Tyndale University College ... in order to give the Honeyman Memorial Lectures. The occasion provided me the opportunity to talk quite a bit with the philosophy department staff, and also with students in the philosophy department. I was exceedingly impressed with both. The staff are very talented, well-trained, and energetic young philosophers, active in their discipline. And not only was it evident to me that the students were being very well taught, I was also impressed with their esprit de corps. The question and answer sessions after my lectures were among the best I have ever experienced."
Nicholas Wolterstorff, Ph.D., Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology,
"Christian colleges must put more resources into developing leading programs in philosophy. In my opinion, Tyndale’s philosophy program is on the cutting edge of a movement to meet this need. If you want to learn how to think as a Christian, if you want to learn the skill-set essential to philosophy, look no further than Tyndale. It is a program for such a time as this."
J.P. Moreland, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Philosophy,
"C.S. Lewis reminds us that good thinking needs to exist in order to counter poor thinking. At Tyndale University College, this is more than a one-liner. From the Great Books tradition to the best in contemporary thought, the philosophy department offers a wide variety of courses, combined with personal interaction. Tyndale's resident philosophers provide the community with a broad offering of classes that integrate learning with vibrant faith. It is this combination that forms the central basis of their strong program."
Gary Habermas, Ph.D., Distinguished Research Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy and Theology,
"Canada needs a new generation of scholar activists...who can speak out intelligently on issues of cultural concern. In this regard, I am impressed by what I see happening in Tyndale's philosophy department. I believe they have the faculty and programs to really make a difference."

Alumni & Students
"During my first semester at Tyndale, I realized that I needed to be in the philosophy program. The professors sincerely care about the intellectural development of their students, and it shows in their dedication. I was introduced to many new ideas, and was taught how to think critically. They have very high academic standards, which drove me to excellence. While in their program, I was able to fully achieve my potential, and developed a passion for learning. I would say the most valuable part of my education was that I learned how to think well. I have found this to be an incredibly helpful skill, not just in my work, but in every aspect of life." - Jonathan Topping (BA, '12; MA Biola University, '14)
"Upon joining the Tyndale student body I was dismayed to learn that I would be required to take a course in philosophy. Believing philosophy to be the pursuit of people who wanted to appear intelligent but had little respect for truth, I could not imagine how it could have any relevance to my studies. Within a semester I had become a philosophy major. Philosophy at Tyndale is all about truth; searching for it, recognizing it, defending it, and applying it." - Hope Cunningham, 2nd year student
"By far, the best part about the department here is the amount of assistance and interaction students get to have with the professors. They are always willing to sit down and help their students, no matter what the problem is. The number of times the professors (especially Dr. R. Weed) have helped me out with problems is far too many to count." - Spencer Johnston (BA, '08), MSc Student, University of Amsterdam
"The professors are very challenging but they really care about their students. They always offer their time to help us learn, and they always make their teachings immediately usable in real life." - Mat Coker (BA, '09)
"I found philosophy [at Tyndale], and I'll never be the same. The academic community I have experienced here has been amazing." - Angela Huxtable (BA, '07), MA student, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
"Since starting my studies here, my thinking has been sharpened, and my view of the world has gained depth and beauty! I've been able to conquer the big questions of life under the guidance of professors I can trust and have fun with, in an academically and spiritually challenging (and life-changing!) environment." Amy Gabriel (BA '10), MA student, University of Toronto
