Benefits of an undergraduate education in philosophy include the possibility of pursuing graduate work in law school, philosophy, religious studies, ministry as well as careers in business and beyond. Moreover, studying philosophy offers advantages beyond these specific professions. Philosophy majors develop critical thinking skills (an important ability for employers), a reflective understanding of self and world and of the ways to responsibly engage, steward, critique, and improve our communities.
