Philosophy is the critical study of ideas, experiences, and institutions. Whether your inclinations are those of a mathematician, poet, scholar, or activist, there is certain to be an area of philosophy that will grab your interest. Unlike many other fields, which focus on memorizing facts and received theories, philosophy is devoted to rational inquiry itself. Philosophers value originality and creativity and are widely known for their ability to express themselves clearly and argue convincingly. For this reason, Philosophy will provide you with a powerful skill set that will move you ahead in a competitive world.
