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.
