The Department of Philosophy is committed to Georgia State's College-to-Career mission to provide students with the range of competencies required to thrive in the complex 21st century economy.
From everyone in our community of faculty, students, and staff, welcome to the GSU Department of Philosophy. We offer a dynamic range of courses in ethics, social and political philosophy, the history of philosophy, philosophy of mind and cognitive science and much more. Our faculty members are internationally esteemed leaders in their field of research, and our master’s program is recognized as one of the best in the nation, according to the Philosophical Gourmet Report.
We take pride in the education we offer to the diverse undergraduates at Georgia State, teaching more than 8,000 students every year and offering majors in Philosophy, Pre-law, and Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Students have opportunities for signature experiences, such as the Ethics Bowl, participation in the Philosophers’ Guild, Student Ethics Forum and Civil Discourse Forum.
Leading scholars from around the world participate in our colloquium series, Neurophilosophy Forum, talks and workshops offered through the Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics.
We hope you will explore on our webpages what Philosophy has to offer to undergraduates and master's students and learn more about our cutting-edge research.
