One thought on “Philosophy Majors Out-Earn Other Humanities Grads

  1. Ha! Well, don’t I stand corrected?! I, myself, was an English major, who couldn’t find a serious job until a bit later in life, and only after acquiring a master’s degree in a science. For me, it’s too late to go back and try philosophy (a forever-love of mine), but I can dream, fantasize, postulate and theorize about what might have been.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and I shall certainly look forward to exploring yours!
