Overview

Few other schools offer a Philosophy degree like ours. That’s because in our program, you won’t just tackle humanity’s most fundamental questions — you’ll also learn how your knowledge applies to the real world. You’ll combine your major studies with broad exposure to business courses and other liberal arts disciplines. With this approach, you’ll develop a serious set of skills in problem-solving, conveying clear thought and expression, and understanding diverse viewpoints.

Employers in every industry need people with the type of problem-solving and critical thinking skills you’ll gain as a Philosophy major — particularly in roles requiring you to stretch beyond your specific training.

A Philosophy major also can make you a very attractive candidate for many graduate programs in fields like law and business.

Philosophy majors find professional success in a wide variety of fields, including:

  • Business
  • Education
  • Entertainment
  • Government
  • Journalism
  • Law
