Philosophy programme prizewinners

The Philosophy Programme has two prizes—one for the top undergraduate student majoring in Philosophy and completing their Bachelor of Arts, the other for the top student completing their Honours degree in Philosophy. Each prize is named for a former member of staff, Maurice Goldsmith.

Framed photographs of each of the winners are on display at the Philosophy Programme premises (6th floor, Murphy Building, Kelburn Parade). Further details about these prizes may be found on the University’s Scholarships and Prizes website.
