Why Study Philosophy?
The study of philosophy can enhance your education with an invaluable grounding in the history of ideas. Philosophy teaches students to think clearly and critically through the most important questions of life. Most of the skills required for student and career success—how to learn, how to apply that learning in professional and personal environments, and how to communicate that knowledge—are central to philosophical training. Philosophy students are taught to evaluate complex problems, identify and examine underlying principles, investigate issues from diverse perspectives, and communicate clearly in both written and oral forms.
