Philosophers Can Do Anything
And They Do!
Our alumni flourish in the world as writers, lawyers, activists, teachers, tech gurus, CEOs, counselors, and, yes, philosophers. Most importantly, though, they go on to live meaningful lives in whichever path they choose.
Read about how philosophy shaped the lives of these inspiring CSU alumni.
Animal activist, author, and doctoral candidate at the University of Oxford
“Philosophy taught me how to learn and how to engage and think through difficult issues, like our treatment of animals.”

“The most important takeaway from my years studying philosophy is to live ethically, and according to my own values, not the values that others tell me to have.”
