When the Apostle Paul was in Athens, he spoke with Epicurean and Stoic philosophers. Christians today continue that conversation, and some Christians have been remarkable philosophers in their own right (e.g., Augustine and Aquinas). Philosophy resembles mathematics, in its rigor and clarity; history, in its sensitivity to people and ideas across cultures and ages; and literature, in its concern for articulate expression.

Philosophy majors are well positioned to pursue any career that requires analytical reasoning, as well as graduate school in philosophy, theology, ministry, business, law, or medicine.
