The right fit

Philosophy might be for you if you:

  • like to read, reason, and write
  • are naturally curious and inquisitive
  • enjoy analyzing life and humanity
  • spend time considering perennial problems of human existence
  • want to develop solutions to contemporary problems of humanity

Philosophy is a timeless study that prepares you for a life of learning—not in the sense of sitting in a classroom, but in the sense of being able to improve your ability to make sound judgments, given the vast amount of information available.

Empirical findings suggest that philosophy offers the best undergraduate preparation for students because of its analytic nature and careful attention to conceptual structure.
