Philosophy itself is not a viable career for most people – unless you want to teach philosophy – and then there are far fewer jobs than there are candidates. But it is actually a very good major for those who are not quite sure what they want to do with their lives. Undergraduate philosophy programs typically allow a wide range of freedom to take courses in other fields, so students can test their aptitude in different subjects. The reasoning and writing skills developed while studying philosophy transfer well to almost any other academic discipline. As a result, philosophy is also excellent preparation for graduate school in many different fields, including law, literature, social sciences, and other fields.
