When I was in university, I met a couple of students who were philosophy majors and I often wondered what job opportunities are in store for them. I just didn't have the courage to ask them for fear that they would find it offensive. :D

Haha, I know this is kind of rude, but I definitely think philosophy is the most useless degree ever-- unless you're planning on becoming a philosophy professor, I suppose. (Or go to law school?) Philosophy is fun to learn about and incorporate more into your life, but...it does seem sort of useless.

You know, there are a lot of jobs that just require a BS, it doesn't matter in what. My dad has a philosophy degree and he makes good money as one of the big guys at the power company here.

I am not very sure, but I think that most priests have a degree in philosophy. I think that is why they are so sure about what they are preaching and it's hard to debate with them.

Philosophy does teach a lot in terms of logical thinking. I agree it is a somewhat useless degree. I dated a guy who was a philosophy major, and he planned on going on to teach at the university. I guess that's more or less all you can do with just a philosophy degree.

I heard something about programs that had been discontinued. I know there were several in Alabama or Georgia. Since there is less money for higher education it doesn't surprise me that philosophy programs are disappearing. There is just not the demand for them.

Philosophy is so interesting to study. It does seem like a very impractical choice for a degree unless you want to teach or write. And even the teaching jobs are more difficult to find.
