Careers Made easy

know advantage

Our graduates often head to law school, for example, at places such as Harvard, Michigan, UCLA, NYU and Rutgers. Our students’ scores on the LSAT, MCAT and GMAT are significantly above average.

Majors in philosophy tend to be particularly sought by business schools as well, who appreciate the combination of reasoning and writing skills that, together, are a powerful and very useful combination.

Many grads have continued on in graduate education in philosophy and to write, teach and collaborate with specialists in other fields to contribute philosophical modes of thinking and wisdom.

My Favorite Course

“What’s more immediate than the language you use? This course gave me the tools to look at words and their context. I can listen to what someone is saying, and get to know them better. It has helped me to understand people in a huge way.”
