While philosophy lays a foundation for all majors, a relatively small number of students choose philosophy as a major. Those who do have been successful in finding careers. A number of our graduates have gone into the ministry or mission work; others have become college professors. Some have become lawyers. At least one is a cinematographer.
Most of our graduates combine study in philosophy with another major because philosophy courses help you think systematically about other fields. Philosophy helps you understand the fundamental assumptions upon which people base their actions and beliefs; they help you address the validity of arguments; and they help you respond coherently to the challenges of our age. Your philosophy courses will help you build and communicate an integrated, comprehensive vision for Christian discipleship, allowing you to offer leadership in a variety of positions and organizations.
