Career Opportunities

Philosophy is not specifically a job-oriented major the way journalism or nursing might be. Still, students majoring in philosophy find themselves equipped with skills attractive to a range of potential employers.  Students with a philosophy background are able to make fine distinctions, to follow and construct arguments, to express themselves well orally, in writing and to read demanding texts with depth and care.

A philosophy major or minor is not only an intellectually stimulating and rewarding course of study available at Kent State University, it is a great way to develop critical and creative thinking skills, an ability to read and comprehend complex material, and a facility with both creative and technical writing. These are skills that today's employers are seeking and which no employee can afford to be without.
