Introduction

Why pursue a philosophy degree at North Central College?

Students in the philosophy program become excellent writers, thinkers, and speakers. You’ll be ready for anything after graduation, whether you attend graduate school or pursue a career ranging from business to law, medicine, religion, or science. The study of philosophy helps you develop reasoning skills that apply to any career you may choose.

Thinking of graduate school? Philosophy majors consistently have the highest scores on GRE and LSAT (law school) exams, and score near the top in GMAT (business school) and MCAT (medical school) tests. Looking for a career? According to a recent study in The Atlantic, employers value philosophy majors for their “ability to effectively communicate orally and in writing,” “critical thinking and reasoning skills,” and “ability to be innovative and creative.”

Students in the Law & Society track of the philosophy major combine a general study of philosophy with an interdisciplinary focus on the philosophical dimensions of Law, Sociology, and Politics. This track is excellent preparation for law school as well as careers in social work and civil service.

You can also:

  • Enjoy small courses that are particularly insightful because they are led by full-time professors who encourage personal relationships and discussion.
  • Apply for research opportunities and internships in the Naperville area and throughout Chicago.
