Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy

A major in Philosophy teaches you how to think critically, analytically, creatively and comprehensively. This is fundamental to any kind of business or institution. For the most part, employers will teach workers particular skills of a job. What they can’t teach or seldom teach is how to think. That is the task of philosophy.
