Welcome to Philosophy!


The Philosophy Department is a member of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. We are located in Peabody Hall on UGA's North Campus. In addition to a full undergraduate program leading to an A.B., we offer both a terminal M.A. and Ph.D.

Our pluralistic department has strengths in many areas, including history of philosophy, ethics, social and political philosophy, epistemology, philosophy of mind, phenomenology, and feminist philosophy, with notable initiatives in Metaphysics and Environmental Philosophy. All of the major philosophical approaches, including analytic, continental, and historical approaches are represented by individual faculty members. The Philosophy Department participates in three interdisciplinary programs including the Environmental Ethics Certificate ProgramThe Institute for Women's Studies, and the Institute for Artificial Intelligence. The department is also home to the academic journal, Ethics & the Environment (edited by department head, Victoria Davion), and conducts an active colloquium series.
