What use is a philosophy degree

Recommended Posts

You can do a degree in Philosophy and then a conversion course to Law (actually you can do a conversion course to Law from basically any degree you fancy). If you want to do Law at the end, it makes more sense and saves more time to just do Law - unless you have a genuine interest in Philosophy, of course. Philosophy obviously has no instant career at the end - but then neither does History and people get jobs in History other than 'History teacher' :P It's more showing you have a set of skills.

In terms of going into Politics, either subjects or both would stand you in good stead. There's no real set of qualifications required to enter a political career, it's more about networking skills and being able to promote yourself very loudly, unless you're looking at the Civil Service.
