Philosophy explores fundamental questions of existence, knowledge, meaning, and value. It also hones skills that are of crucial importance in a wide range of careers. With its emphasis on challenging questions, careful analysis, rigorous argumentation and creative problem solving, philosophy enriches the mind and makes a great major, second major, or minor.
