The major in Philosophy fosters superior skills in written and oral communication, problem solving, 'thinking outside the box' and formulating understandable solutions to complex problems. These skills are transferrable to a wide variety of work and ministry fields, and highly desirable in the workplace. This major also forms an excellent foundational degree for most graduate-level study.
The B.A. in Philosophy equips the student with critical skills, knowledge, and values to positively impact today's world. Philosophy majors rank first in the GRE exam (a widely required examination for entry into graduate programs) in the verbal section; first overall among non-science majors; and ninth overall (based on 2002 GRE test scores from the Educational Testing Service (ETS)). Contributing to this ranking is Philosophy's emphasis on clear and well-argued writing, the analysis of ideas and an careful articulation of those ideas using metaphors, models and methods.
