- Major: Philosophy and Psychology
I chose to major in philosophy because it tackles the big questions in life. In philosophy, you are never expected to accept anything as true just because somebody says so. It is up to the individual to judge what is true by reason rather than deferring to an authority figure for the answer.
Philosophy majors can do anything that any liberal arts major can do, and more! Our program will enable you to think clearly and creatively by identifying and analyzing assumptions and arguments. Transferable skills such as the abilities to objectively analyze, efficiently organize, competently communicate and thoroughly research contribute to the philosophy major’s marketability.
Graduates majoring in philosophy can be found in a number of fields. You career choices are limited only by your individual design.
- Government positions
- Service professions
Many of our alumni have found a philosophy major to be useful in these fields, and you may too. If you have an interest in developing a reasonable understanding of reality, then a major or minor in philosophy at Mount Union may be right for you.
