Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. “The unexamined life is not worth living,” said Socrates, one of our most enduring philosophers and thinkers. Being able to think critically and independently is an important skill that is often taken for granted. The serious study of philosophy as a major can prepare you to excel in any number of distinct, rewarding, and challenging careers. Philosophy is a multifaceted subject that has endless depth and potential to study and learn from for years to come.
