Student’s (and parent’s) most Frequently Asked Questions

Why study Philosophy?

Philosophy is one of the best humanities subjects. Philosophy investigates fundamental questions, such as the nature of reality and knowledge, that are independent of any particular viewpoint or social context.

Studying philosophy is great for developing and enhancing communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. In addition, studying philosophy can also make you more persuasive. The writing component of philosophy makes it very applicable for careers in industry or education. It's especially helpful if you want to be a lawyer or professor.

A philosophy degree typically entails studying the arguments of influential thinkers, examining their ideas, and voicing your own opinions regarding them - which could be an appropriate fit if you've been questioning things your whole life and enjoy an intellectual challenge.


What university degrees is Philosophy useful for?

In today's largely data-driven world, knowledge of philosophy is more important than ever. Psychology, law, and politics are a few of the many fields that are heavily dependent on sound reasoning and careful critical thinking.

For students who have studied philosophy, their knowledge and understanding of human behaviour can be used in a number of postgraduate degrees. This includes Master and doctorate level programs in philosophy, law, politics, psychology, business, finance, and more. 

What careers does studying philosophy lead to?

Philosophy majors make great lawyers, politicians, solicitors, economic advisors, doctors, and teachers. Philosophy is also a great major for anyone who wants a flexible career full of intellectual stimulation that can lead anywhere from working at an investment bank to being the teacher of young children.

In addition, philosophy will also teach you how to think independently and be a good communicator. Philosophy majors are leaders in their fields who use their knowledge of logic and argumentation to solve problems in creative ways.

It's not just important to have an idea or opinion – it's about the way you express yourself that can convince others of your point of view. This is exactly what Philosophy students learn as they study both the works of influential thinkers throughout history as well as the art of communicating ideas effectively through writing, speech-making, and debate. Studying philosophy will also help you gain critical thinking, logical reasoning, writing, and communication skills so that you can go into any field with confidence.


How does philosophy help with getting a high-paying job?

Philosophy is admired as one of the most important texts and topics in the field of humanities because it teaches how to think critically about real-world problems and look beyond basic assumptions. These skills are immensely valuable for pursuing high-paying careers like law, psychology, and politics.
