Philosophy is an excellent choice of study for pre-law students, as preparation for graduate school in philosophy, as a minor or second major for liberal arts students preparing for graduate school, and for anyone who would benefit from a discipline of clear thinking, writing, and problem solving in the pursuit of wisdom.
Philosophy majors consistently score higher than most other majors on LSAT, GMAT, and GRE tests. (In fact, twice in the past several years the scores of philosophy majors on these three tests were higher than any other discipline.) In addition, the ability to think critically, argue persuasively, and solve problems (which is the focus of philosophical training) is essential for success in our society's rapidly changing work environment.
Our students have continued their studies in many prestigious institutions, such as the London School of Economics, Binghamton, Cornell, University of Arizona, Tufts University.
