Besides teaching philosophy, which isn’t for everyone, you could use your philosophical training in many ways. For example, philosophy is an excellent preparation for a career in law; many law schools look favorably on a philosophy major. Also, you could pursue careers in public administration, journalism, health care, communications, and pastoral work.
A philosophy major or minor is universally beneficial since it emphasizes the following skills:
- Analyzing and resolving problems
- Seeing problems from different points of view
- Communicating cogently and persuasively
- Integrating knowledge
These skills are always in demand and never become obsolete.
