We offer a funding package to all students accepted into our masters program.
The Department of Philosophy has developed three areas of research strength:
- Social and Political Philosophy
- Philosophy of Mind
- History of Philosophy
Students pursuing the Master of Arts (M.A.) in Philosophy degree may choose of the following concentrations:
- Traditional/Thesis Track
- Concentration in Neurophilosophy
- Concentration in History of Philosophy
Our M.A. program is designed to be finished in two years. See “tips on finishing fast.” However, a few students take three years to finish.
In addition to the regularly offered courses described below (and any other Georgia State University courses), Georgia State University students are able to take courses at about 20 local universities, such as Emory University, and their tuition waiver applies to these courses. Students should be aware that the cross-registration deadlines and procedures are complex and the other universities often require that students follow them to the letter.
The Department feels that prospective students (and others) deserve to know what our M.A. students do after graduation.
