CAREERS AND INTERNSHIPS

Career opportunities for philosophy majors are numerous. Philosophy majors have been successful in business, writing, teaching and editing. As well as training students for graduate studies in philosophy and the humanities, the philosophy major is a popular choice for pre-law students because of the rigorous development of abstract, analytical and argumentative abilities that the study of philosophy makes possible.

PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is the systematic study of the fundamental questions: What is real? Does God exist? Is the soul immortal? Do I have free will? What ought I do with my life? Through the study of these questions, students of philosophy acquire critical thinking skills, knowledge of influential ideas in our cultural history, and the ability to reflect deeply on the basic questions of human life.
