A note on permission forms and prerequisite waivers

The course instructor and/or Department Chair has the final say in choosing whether to grant permission forms or prerequisite waivers. For permission forms, priority is given to students who require the course to complete their majors. When requesting a prerequisite waiver, you must provide the instructor with your student number, GPA, and a rationale as to why you believe you can enter the class without the prerequisite. Prerequisites are in place to ensure that students have the necessary background knowledge to be successful in the course; if you can demonstrate that you have this knowledge, your request for a prerequisite waiver may be considered. 


2021-22 Fall and Winter Courses

Registration for Fall, Fall/Winter and Winter 2021-22 courses will open in early July 2021.

Many Philosophy courses are being planned for in-person delivery in Fall, Fall/Winter and Winter 2021-22, but several will continue to be offered remotely. For more detail about the planned delivery method for a certain course, please refer to WebAdvisor.

Please note that the University will be observing the Public Health Orders set out by the Province of Manitoba. Students should be prepared for the possibility that sections planned for in-person delivery may need to move to remote delivery, should restrictions change.

Wondering what to expect from your online courses? UWinnipeg is using the categories online asynchronous, hybrid online, and live online to let you know. On WebAdvisor, refer to the Notes column to find the delivery method for a specific course. 

Online asynchronous: The course is completely asynchronous. All materials will be made available online on Nexus for you to access and study independently. There are no expectations for you to virtually ‘attend’ any classes or sessions.

Hybrid online: The course is a hybrid of synchronous and asynchronous study. Some materials will be made available online on Nexus for you to access and study independently, but you will also be expected to virtually ‘attend’ some classes or sessions (e.g., group discussions). Any of these ‘live’ sessions would occur during the dates and times listed for the course on WebAdvisor. More detailed information will be available on the course outline, or you can contact the instructor if you have any questions about how the course will run.

Live online: The course is completely synchronous. You will be expected to virtually ‘attend’ all classes according to the WebAdvisor schedule as though the class were in-person.

Please note that this schedule may be subject to change.
