Career Opportunities Furman University

A philosophy degree can get you almost anywhere. Our students have gone on to graduate school, become doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, environmental affairs specialists, and journalists. No matter where you want to go, philosophy will give you the tools you need to get there. Philosophy will also help you examine why you’re passionate about the things you’re passionate about and gain a deeper understanding of your chosen field. The result—you’ll choose a career (and a life!) you love, not just another job.
