Cabrini's philosophy majors work in a variety of careers and many go on to graduate school for philosophy, law, public policy, or public administration, as well as teaching philosophy at the college level.
Students often combine philosophy with some other major like psychology, history, or business, which gives them a chance to study what they love—philosophy—and still have some career preparation in another discipline.
Philosophy majors do very well in law school and other graduate school programs, because they have the necessary critical-thinking skills. Many go into some kind of writing or communications job for the same reasons.
Liberal studies majors also have a broad range of careers to choose from. The skills gained in Liberal Studies are the very same skills that employers most seek. The student’s career choice will depend on his/her focus within the liberal arts.
Liberal Studies is an appropriate major for the student who is open to a variety of employment opportunities and does not want to be too narrowly defined.
