Overview

Why Major in Philosophy?

A good number of students declare a major in Philosophy because they’re fascinated by the subject matter.  These are the students who want the opportunity to read more, think more, and write more about the history of Philosophy, and about classic and contemporary debates in Ethics, Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Social-Political Philosophy.  Others, though, decide to complete a Philosophy degree for practical reasons.  That’s right!  There are practical benefits that come from studying Philosophy.
