Institute for Artificial Intelligence

The University of Georgia has always seen cognitive science as an interdisciplinary field where computer science intersects with philosophy, psychology, linguistics, engineering and other fields. This comprises both classical artificial intelligence, which focuses on getting computers to behave intelligently, and newer approaches to cognitive computing, where the computer is seen as an extension rather than a model of the human mind.

Comparative Literature

Comparative Literature is a large and diverse department, offering courses in world literatures and languages, literary theory and interdisciplinary studies. Literature classes include a full range of comparative courses in European literature and culture from Antiquity to the present and in the literatures and cultures of Africa and Asia. Their interdisciplinary courses focus on literature and film, literature and the visual arts, literature and music, and literature and nature.

Physics & Astronomy

From the structure of the nucleus to the big bang, from superconductors to special relativity, the department of Physics and Astronomy contributes to our understanding of the universe on both a macro- and micro-scale. The University of Georgia is on the cutting edge of harnessing hydrogen for sustainable energy, revolutionizing computing using quantum mechanics, and discovering distant planets.
