Location: Bowdoin / Philosophy / Alumni


A small number of Philosophy majors go on to do graduate work in Philosophy. However, most of our majors go on to careers outside academia. The study of philosophy develops many skills that have wide application, including the ability to think logically, to formulate and evaluate arguments, and to write clearly.
