A philosophy degree can provide a solid foundation for a career in business, law, government and information technology. The field stresses teaching how to think, not what to think. The ability to analyze arguments, think critically, and apply logic are valuable skills prized in these fields.
Many graduate programs are highly receptive to applicants with philosophy degrees, and philosophy students typically perform very well on standardized tests such as the GRE and LSAT. Combining philosophy with a second major such as biology, computer/information/cognitive science, business or math can expand your well-rounded interdisciplinary intellectual experience.
