Who Is The Philosophy Major?


Contrary to popular belief, philosophy majors are not ivory tower intellectuals. They are young people who desire to deepen their wonder about the world and human existence.

Because of their training, the work opportunities for philosophy majors are not confined to the fields of education, religious life, or legal work. Neither do most philosophy majors end up unemployed. Our alums are making their mark in fields as diverse as banking and development work.

You can find our graduates leading the country?s largest wireless service provider, some of its more progressive local governments, designing for the CCP, writing for academic journals and popular magazines, and working with some of the more progressive political parties. This is because philosophy as a major provides students with a way of thinking that will allow them to think broadly and creatively.
