DescriptionBy choosing to study philosophy you can learn valuable life skills to put to use in both your professional and personal lives. These life skills encompass effective communication, critical and logical thinking, and an ability to grasp all angles of an argument and analyze it to get to the crux of an issue — a skill-set vital to work in law, politics, business, and academia.

Philosophy tackles the most fundamental questions such as "How should I live? Is there a God? What are my rights and responsibilities? Do I have free will?" Studying philosophy will provide insight into such questions and help you develop the skills of analysis, argumentation, and clear expression. Philosophical questions underlie the theory and practice of every academic field.
