Employment / Career Paths

The misconception that graduates with a Philosophy degree have few employment / career opportunities is fortunately not true. Philosophy graduates are well prepared to successfully pursue many employment / career paths, including:


* University Lecturer / Professor

* Community College Lecturer / Professor

* High School Teacher - (variety of subjects)


* Law, Paralegal, & Public Policy

Other Career Paths

* Journalism

* Editing

* Business & non-profit careers

Licensed Philosophical Consultant, Counselor, or Therapist

* Careers in just about any field

This is due in part to the skills developed by studying academic philosophy, including - open mindedness, focus on relevancy and precision, logic-based critical reasoning, and analytical thinking, reading and writing skills.
