Philosophy students are without question the students best-trained in the ability to understand and evaluate reasoning. An education in philosophy does not train students for any one specific career. Instead, the discipline provided by philosophical training prepares students for a variety of professional and scholarly fields where independent judgment, conceptual dexterity, and intellectual acumen are required. The skills of philosophy are universal skills, basic to professional expertise in fields such as law, business, journalism, and education. This accounts for why philosophy majors are among the most sought-after of all university graduates.

I have come to realize the answer to the question perpetually posed, "Philosophy? What are you going to do with that?" The correct response is "Absolutely anything you want."
