Career Opportunities

The most obvious choice for a career in philosophy is a Professor of Philosophy in an institution of higher education. This path will generally require an masters' degree or PhD in philosophy after the completion of the bachelor of arts degree at Siena Heights University.

However, many of our philosophy majors go on to pursue higher degrees in related disciplines, such as English, history or psychology.

Philosophy also provides an excellent preparation for students desiring to attend law school.

In short, while very few job applications will list a B.A. in philosophy as a requirement for employment, any job that requires clear thinking skills, effective oral and written communication skills, and an ability to solve problems in the absence of step-by-step instructions will be a perfect fit for a philosophy major.
