Application Information


Philosophy majors have numerous career options. Students graduate with broad knowledge and skills that are applicable in every profession, making philosophy one of the most flexible undergraduate programs. Philosophy students excel at critical thinking, persuasive communication, assessing large volumes of information, research, problem solving, prioritizing, adapting to new situations, and decision-making. These skills are highly valued by employers and, since they are not job-specific, can be transferred between jobs and careers.
