Philosophers ponder the world’s greatest problems—but they’re also equipped to solve them.

At Bentley, Philosophy majors get broad exposure to liberal arts, in addition to business studies.

You’ll learn to account for diverse viewpoints, solve problems and clearly articulate your ideas. The critical thinking skills you gain through a Philosophy degree can be applied directly to positions in journalism, healthcare, business or government.

Philosophy majors are attractive candidates for graduate programs in law and business, too. Every Philosophy major must complement their program with foundational business studies, leading either toward a minor or a second major in Business Studies. This ensures you leave Bentley with broad business expertise, in addition to philosophical prowess.

Seeing beauty from the inside out

The clothing we wear can impact our mood and inspire confidence. That’s particularly true when choosing a high school prom dress. It’s one reason why a group of Bentley students every year hold an event, known as Dresses to Dreams, to provide prom dresses to local high school students who may not otherwise be able to afford them. Another reason? To help young women build self-confidence that will last long after high school.
