Philosophy makes an excellent undergraduate major for students going on to careers in law, business, fields relating to social policy and public affairs, and graduate studies.
The study of Philosophy hones a logical and critical orientation to knowledge claims, and increases awareness and appreciation of the fundamental intellectual, aesthetic and ethical values of the world in which we live. The value of an education in Philosophy extends beyond the domain of personal and academic skills.
As the global community continues to shrink and corporate America restructures, careers will increasingly demand employees who can think critically, disclose hidden assumptions and values, formulate problems clearly, and discern the impact of ideas. The flexibility provided by a background in Philosophy can become a career asset.
