Philosophy is an ancient discipline which studies the most fundamental questions that arise in all areas of human concern, from religion and politics, to morality and the sciences.
Your philosophical training will give you a whole raft of 'transferable skills'. What that means is: you'll develop capacities and abilities through studying philosophy that potential employers will value immensely.
The lecturers in Philosophy make clear why what we are learning is important at the beginning of each new topic, which personally makes me more interested in the topic we are learning. Also, the people in general are happy and enthusiastic and are willing to get involved and get out of their comfort zones. The lecturers are always willing to help and are happy to make times when students can see them (even not in their office hours).
