Career Options

The problem-solving and critical thinking skills you learn as a philosophy major are highly valued by employers, especially in the growing number of careers in philosophy where you are expected to learn as you go and tackle projects that go beyond your specific training.

All philosophy majors at Bentley can graduate with additional competencies in business and information technology by pursuing a minor in business or enrolling in Bentley's Five-Year BA/MBA program. The combination of in-depth exposure to business and training in philosophy also provides an excellent foundation for graduate-level training in law and business. Philosophy students go on to serve as managers, ethics and compliance officers, lawyers, and executives within both government and nonprofit organizations.
