Hi Christopher,

Philosophy provides an excellent preparation for law school and other professional programs, as well as a solid foundation for a career in business, teaching, writing, or public service.

Philosophy graduates are found working for almost every type of employer in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Opportunities are available in arts-based areas like publishing, the media, journalism, advertising and teaching, through to computing and IT.

Typical employers include:

  • local government and the Civil Service
  • advertising, marketing and public relations agencies
  • management consultancies
  • secondary schools, further education colleges and higher education institutions
  • law firms
  • publishing companies
  • charities
  • banking and insurance companies
  • accountancy firms
  • recruitment agencies.

HTH,

Cheers,

Shyam

Scott’s Answer

Hi Christopher,

Because Philosophy is not necessarily a trade skill, but rather an area of academic enlightenment, there is no real industry for this degree other than advancement to a PhD and teaching it on the college level. So your job prospects will include a variety of things that involve using critical thinking skills the hiring entity assumes were acquired when you obtained a bachelor's degree. In other words, most entry level positions that say "bachelors degree required" or "bachelors degree preferred" would hire for this degree because they are looking for someone who is college educated. I hope this helps. Good luck!
