The Philosophy Department is pleased with our success in reducing graduate time to completion and moreover, with our success relative to comparable departments in Canada.  Of the 2009 cohort, the average completion time for Queen’s Philosophy MA students is 4.57 terms (ranking 4 out of 15 compared to other philosophy departments among the research universities in Canada).  According to the same data, 87.5% of our MA students finished within 5 years.  100% of the 2009 cohort of PhD students completed within 5 years, meaning that our department ranked first among the 15 research universities surveyed.  The same data shows that none of our PhD students in that cohort withdrew from the program before completion.
