Philosophy offers the opportunity for careful consideration of the fundamental questions of life. More practically, the study of philosophy prepares graduates for a variety of careers. Are you considering pre-law? Nationwide, philosophy majors do better than anyone else on the LSAT. Planning on an MBA? Philosophy majors outperform business majors on the GMAT. Whether you are interested in rigorous yet flexible career preparation, or thoughtful analysis about reality, truth, meaning, and justice, philosophy has something for you. Philosophy majors sometimes pursue graduate study of philosophy and become academics, but more often they go into law, medicine, business, journalism, public policy, or government.
