Philosophy Minor

The philosophy minor prepares students for a wide variety of careers, future graduate work and professional tracks. Every field and career path needs people who can think logically and communicate effectively, making philosophy an ideal complement to many primary areas of study. Philosophy students learn how to examine complex problems, analyze internal logic, question assumptions, understand other points of view, and find unique and creative solutions. Graduates with these skills are sought after in fields like law, medicine and business, as well as arts, humanities, history and social sciences.
