Why study philosophy?

 

Most undergraduate students interested in studying philosophy have doubts about their future career.

Nevertheless, studying  Philosophy (especially in one of the world leading universities) is a great first step to your future career. Studying philosophy gives you skills that will always be relevant, no matter what path you will choose. Philosophy teaches you how to write clearly, how to explain difficult ideas, how to find connections between different ideas or statements. But what is the most important - Philosophy teaches how to think, and this skill will be relevant to any career path you choose. But besides career, there is much more important part of your life - the development of your personality. Studying philosophy helps people to realize themselves as thinking and social creatures, gives deep understanding of political and social life of humanity.
