“In my opinion, there is no area of one’s life that does not benefit from the study of philosophy. In addition to setting me apart in a very positive way from other medical school applicants, majoring in philosophy helped me secure a very good “real job” before beginning medical school.”
Will Doemland, Class of 2016

“But for the incredible support of the philosophy department's faculty, I never would have made it into law school. And the skills they helped me develop through my studies allowed me to excel once I was there.”
