After Lewis & Clark
Are there career opportunities?
You bet. Philosophy develops intellectual survival skills that are useful in science, the ministry, journalism, government, computer science, business, and other professions. Philosophy majors are one of the two highest scoring groups on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), highest scoring majors after applied sciences on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), and second on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Together with the relevant science courses, philosophy provides a unique preparation for medical school. Wisdom and success. What more could you ask?
Ludwig Wittgenstein: “Working in philosophy — like work in architecture in many respects — is really more a working on oneself. On one’s interpretation. On one’s way of seeing things. (And what one expects of them).”
