Program Description:

Georgetown's doctoral program in philosophy is distinctive in emphasizing both history and theory in its approach to contemporary issues. The program has regularly scheduled courses on the major figures and periods in the history of philosophy, and special requirements in logic, metaphysics, and epistemology. The program is also distinctive in its pluralism, which reflects the Department's belief that philosophy is nourished by friendly interchange between different viewpoints, traditions, approaches, and styles, in its interdisciplinary orientation, which is reflected in the diverse affiliations of its faculty and its special programs of study.
