Our comprehensive philosophy MA program in Philosophy at the University of Georgia covers all major study areas. Approaches include historical study, phenomenology, linguistic and logical analysis, with special strengths in metaphysics, ethics, political philosophy and philosophy of mind.


The Philosophy Department is a member of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. In addition to a full undergraduate program leading to an A.B., we offer both a terminal M.A. and Ph.D. The department also participates in three interdisciplinary programs, is home to an academic journal, and conducts an active colloquium series.

The department offers a comprehensive program, covering the major areas of philosophical study, leading to the MA and the PhD degrees. Various approaches, including historical studies, linguistic analysis, logical analysis, and phenomenology are represented by the faculty. Though the department allows students to pursue their own interests in diverse areas, our special strengths lie in metaphysics, moral and political philosophy, and theory of knowledge and philosophy of mind.

Programme Structure

  • The graduate program is designed to give broad and thorough training in these basic areas of philosophy, as well as the opportunity for special study in the area of specialization of interest to the student. 
  • Admission to the PhD program presupposes a thorough background in the history of philosophy. Restricted admission encourages close student-faculty relationships. Preparation for teaching is considered an integral part of the PhD program.
  • For the MA degree, reading knowledge of one foreign language is required; for the PhD, one foreign language is required and a second language and/or knowledge of areas cognate to philosophy may be required.
