Philosophy Degrees: Oregon Career Colleges

Career College: Oregon Philosophy Programs

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

Going to an Oregon college gives you seven different regions to explore in this scenic and open-minded state. Beach lovers enjoy the wild and untamed Coastal region. The city of Portland is an artist's mecca, and one of the most livable cities in America. Among other attractions, it is unusually handicapped-accessible, so if you are a person of limited mobility, you can enjoy a free and cosmopolitan life with fewer of the frustrations and compromises you encounter in other cities. Highlights of the other Oregon regions include the mountain range surrounding Mount Hood: it is worth a visit, whether you are a skier, a backpacker, or just a lover of scenic drives.

Oregon 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.
