Your inquisitive mind can make you highly employable
A Massey BA (Philosophy) will develop your abilities to think and reason, to express your thoughts clearly and concisely, and to critically evaluate complex ideas, all of which will make you a highly employable graduate.
Think deeply about the big questions
If you are fascinated by the big questions of what kind of beings we are, and how we interact with the world in which we live, then Massey’s BA (Philosophy) is the degree for you.
Make your point and influence people
Philosophy isn’t just about abstract thinking. Massey’s BA (Philosophy) offers you the chance to learn highly applicable and useful skills. Studying philosophy develops your critical thinking skills: your ability to assess whether arguments are rationally compelling, and to make your arguments compelling to others.
You will also learn how to express your thoughts concisely and clearly, how to engage constructively in debate, how to deal with unusual and difficult ideas, and how to look at problems in new ways.
Benefit at work and at home
The intellectual skill of critical thinking is important in the workplace, and is consistently ranked by employers amongst the most desirable attributes in an employee. It helps you in your day-to-day life too, such as when watching the news or reading stories on the internet. Through your study of philosophy you will learn how to understand and evaluate what you read rather than just remembering it, and to become more aware of the reasons why you hold the views you do. A major in philosophy will challenge your thinking and encourage you to continue asking questions.
A Massey BA (Philosophy) gives you experience in handling unusual and difficult ideas, communicating your thinking with clarity, and being aware of the reasons for your views while being flexible and adaptive. You will cope with new challenges as the needs of your work change. That adaptability and the ability to think on your feet will be a big advantage in careers in advertising, journalism, management, policy analysis, research and many more.
These skills are highly prized by employers and this means you can explore a wide range of career options. Recent graduates in philosophy have gone into jobs as diverse as:
