Philosophy is the critical study of ideas, experiences, and institutions. Whether your inclinations are those of the mathematician, the poet, the scholar, or the activist, there is certain to be an area of philosophy that will pique your interest. Unlike many other fields, in which the memorization of facts or the inculcation of received theories figures prominently, philosophy is devoted to free inquiry, and originality and creativity as well as the ability to express oneself clearly and to argue convincingly are valued. For this reason, the Philosophy major, and the study of philosophy generally, offer preparation for a variety of careers.
