Why Study Philosophy Here?

Philosophy students are without question 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.
