Philosophy teaches you to think clearly and profoundly – about any subject. Studying Philosophy trains your mind to learn new things quickly, making it a very practical (and employable) degree.
At USF, your professors will get to know you, your interests, and your strengths. They’ll help you personalize your education while you learn to think creatively and deeply about the world and the human experience.
We asked our professors and they said philosophers:
Analyze the logical structure of arguments
Learn the effects of assumptions on beliefs and cultures
Discern logical fallacies and understand cultural conflicts
Philosophy students study meaning and purpose. After four years, you’ll have a much better idea of what it is you want and like to do. Philosophy teaches practical, critical thinking skills that are good for any vocation, such as consulting, IT, education, ethics, government, law, and much more.
