Description of Philosophy
Philosophy is a major that seeks to understand the nature of human beings through analyzing, interpreting, and logically
explaining what human beings believe, value, and do. As a division of the liberal arts, it involves the systematic study of the
truths or principles underlying basic issues such as the nature of reality, knowledge, value, and obligation. Students of
philosophy acquire skills of critical thinking, learn to discover and evaluate basic assumptions, are trained in accurate
analysis of concepts and ideas, and can easily construct logical and reliable arguments, many businesses recognize the value
of a philosophical education. What is more, they look favorably at an individual who quickly learns new things and think for
him or herself and can be trained in the specifics of a job. With that said, a student majoring in philosophy can tailor his or
her career for law, business, education, or a host of other professions.
