“Majoring in philosophy is great preparation for graduate school in any number of different fields. No other major will make you a better critical thinker, logical arguer, or more thorough researcher and writer. You will be prepared to outperform your peers on any standardized test you need for the next step. Even if you do not pursue philosophy professionally, you will bring a creativity, an openness, and a passion for learning into whatever field you pursue.”
