What Can I Do With This Degree?

A degree in philosophy represents a challenging and exciting encounter with the questions and topics of human living that have engaged some of the world's greatest minds.

Philosophy engages students in analytical thinking, logic and advocacy, but habits of speculation are important and philosophical minds are also good at thinking creatively and unconventionally. Given the level of philosophical studies, students become good writers and communicators. As philosophy is a basis of secular ethics, students are urged to confront ethical questions and personal responsibility.
