Career Paths

The Philosophy Department works with XPD (Experience and Professional Development) to make sure you’re able to show potential employers all of the assets you’ve developed in your philosophical training. Our alums have become technical writers, lobbyists, librarians, dentists, diplomats, teachers, and more! Philosophy is also excellent preparation for law or medical school, and many of our graduates have taken those paths.
