I am in high school and I'm thinking about majoring in philosophy what can I do with a degree in this field?

The question pretty much explains itself. What jobs would or could I be best in?

Lots of Mc Jobs, salary wise with a distinguished air of pseudo intellectural aggorance over the less cerebral. Persuing a good education will will prepare you for whatever career you desire.

If you go to some college web sites and go to the philosophy department they sometimes will list what other graduate students have done with their degree. Have colleges mail you out information on that major too.

I've known some people with history and philosophy degrees who work for the government overseas. They are usually consulates of embassies and they work in the diplomatic field with a lot of benefits in foreign countries, think about it... It seems worth it! :)
