School of Arts and Sciences | Philosophy Possible Careers
A major in philosophy is the basic preparation for graduate studies in philosophy, which could lead to a career in teaching philosophy. Traditionally, philosophy has been one of the very best preparations for law school. A major or minor in philosophy also critically and competently prepares students for professional programs such as medicine, business, the social sciences, theology and ministry. The American Philosophical Association has documented that philosophy majors are employed in business, education, government, publishing and the computer field.
