Philosophy teaches individuals to cultivate the skills needed for leadership in the midst of cultural change. You'll learn how to ask questions, think critically and imaginatively, and reason effectively about cultural, moral, and political values and beliefs, including those that prevail within professions. The philosophy minor is a powerful complement to any major because it signifies a strong capacity for leadership. You’ll develop the ability to think critically and reason well, which you’ll find applicable and relevant on any career path.
