Program Description:

The George Washington University’s Department of Philosophy offers two distinct tracks within their graduate program. The first, a MA in Philosophy and Social Policy, addresses questions of public policy from a humanistic perspective using an interdisciplinary course of study. The second, a new terminal MA in Philosophy, emphasizes coursework in the history of philosophy, as well as continental and analytic traditions, so that students can gain the critical thinking, close reading, persuasive writing, and oral communication skills needed to succeed in both academic and professional realms. Both degrees take full advantage of the opportunities and resources provided by their Washington, D.C. location.
