Philosophy Degrees: New Jersey Career Colleges

Career College: New Jersey Philosophy Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in New Jersey offering Philosophy degrees. Critical thinking and the meaning of life: earning philosophy degrees

Attending a New Jersey college will put you in close proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, two world-class cities. New Jersey itself is a much more affordable alternative to New York, with it's relatively peaceful and crime-free towns and small cities. But New Jersey is not all city life: even today, nearly a quarter of the state is farmland, producing the renowned Jersey tomatoes as well as table vegetables and fruits of all kinds. Time out of the classroom can be well spent at New Jersey's 127 miles of Atlantic coastline, with some of the broadest beaches on the Eastern Seaboard.

New Jersey Career Colleges: Philosophy Degrees

Philosophy: A major for all careers

If you find yourself continually asking searching questions about issues such as the nature of human existence, what constitutes right and wrong, and even why you are asking these questions, a philosophy degree could be the right choice for you.

What can I learn through a philosophy degree program?

More than just pondering some of life's big questions, such degree programs require the following skills:

  • Critical thinking
  • Problem solving
  • Analysis of ideas
  • Logic
  • Debate

These should prove to be valuable aptitudes for any career.

Philosophy degree programs cover a wide range of subject areas, such as:

  • Ethics
  • Metaphysics
  • Morality
  • Religion

These topics are not usually studied in the abstract, but are considered in relation to the issues that affect our lives today. Course designers recognize the need for philosophy programs to be relevant.

What are my career opportunities as a graduate?

The four professions listed below are often well-compensated and personally rewarding. "Phil grads" can add value to any of these roles and more. In May 2010, these were mean annual wages for some relevant careers:

  1. Lawyers: $129,440
  2. Political Scientists: $107,930
  3. Sociologists: $80,130
  4. Writers and Authors: $65,960

Philosophy can provide a foundation for a wealth of other satisfying career paths. Majors are trained to be open-minded and analytical, question assumptions, think creatively, to express and defend their ideas in debate. As such, philosophy can be a solid foundation for roles in politics, medical ethics, business, management, journalism and education.
