New MA Program in Philosophy at George Washington University

The George Washington University Department of Philosophy is very happy to announce its new M.A. in Philosophy.  This new graduate program complements our longstanding and highly successful M.A. in Philosophy and Social Policy.

The GW Department of Philosophy’s pluralist faculty spans both analytic and continental traditions, and the new M.A. in Philosophy will provide ideal preparation for students who intend to go on to philosophy doctoral programs.  The curriculum is designed so that students can take advantage of courses offered by other departments within GW and the Washington, D.C. consortium of other local universities (including Georgetown University and Catholic University of America).

Every applicant will be considered for a tuition award that will offset the costs of attendance.  Applications for Fall 2016 will be considered on a rolling basis, with financial aid priority given to those received by February 1, 2016.  For more information, visit or e-mail Dr. Laura Papish, Director of Graduate Studies, at
