Where Can I Go...with a Philosophy Degree?
The study of Philosophy helps students develop a range of crucially important abilities that are salient marks of a well-developed mind. Philosophy majors routinely receive some of the highest scores on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), and the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).
Graduates are usually well prepared to enter advanced degree programs in law, political science, history, ministry, theology, as well as natural science and other social sciences. Students interested in ethics, law, human nature, religion, and related topics are encouraged to take some of our courses and perhaps discuss with us the intellectual and vocational benefits of studying philosophy.
The philosophy program has prepared students for both advanced academic studies and a wide variety of non-academic vocations. Our graduates are all over the world doing diverse work. Here are just a few examples of the career trajectories of a few of our most recent graduates:
