Online Philosophy Programs

One of the original academic pursuits was philosophy, a systematic way of thinking about the world. Philosophy has been reinvigorated recently through practical applications. It is still a rigorous academic subject and requires a degree to turn into a career. Studying philosophy online might be a good solution for non-traditional students who need flexibility in scheduling.

The intensity and depth of a philosophy degree depends on whether you're enrolled in an associate's, bachelor's, or master's degree program. Classes typically deal with classical philosophy, ethics in different professions, and non-Western thought. Many programs now include practical philosophy classes and work study programs.

If you graduate with a degree in philosophy, you can work in many fields. Ethicists are required in many governmental and regulatory settings. The lessons of philosophy also apply to leadership in government, business, and the non-profit sector. These days, many leaders in the corporate world are even substituting a philosophy degree for a master's in business administration.
