What Can You do With a Bachelor's in Philosophy?

Philosophy is integrally related to all other academic disciplines. The study of philosophy can strengthen your intellectual capacities and skills (e.g., analytical, evaluative, and interpretive), and enable you to critically examine your own beliefs and judgments. This makes the study of philosophy an essential and valuable part of a university education. With the skills you will gain from a major in philosophy, many options will be open to you.

Barry’s major in philosophy is designed to prepare you for:

  • Graduate study in philosophy
  • Professional education, such as law. (A number of Barry philosophy majors have been accepted to top law schools in the U.S.)
  • Any career that requires analytical, interpretive thought.
