Philosophy probes the nature of the human race and the ways in which people seek to understand themselves and the world. Students in this discipline develop the intellectual flexibility and strong reasoning skills that are essential in a wide range of fields including business, publishing, social services, politics and diplomacy. The bachelor's degree in philosophy is an excellent foundation for advanced study in law, theology, education, library science, business administration, medicine, and urban planning. Recent graduates have gone on to excel in law school, seminary, and graduate school as well as in business.
