Philosophy is an invaluable addition to any major. With its emphasis on clear and careful reasoning, philosophy can provide a valuable foundation for careers in communication, politics, social work, and education. It can also provide a strong foundation for careers in public administration and policy making by teaching you how to identify and examine the values and methods implied in everyday decision making.
