What do a famous actor/producer, a Pope, and the founder of Paypal all have in common? You might be surprised to know that Ricky Gervais, Pope John Paul II, and Peter Thiel all majored in philosophy as undergrads. Studying philosophy is stimulating and rigorous. It allows you to think about the world in new and interesting ways, to look at problems from multiple angles and propose multiple solutions. It improves your writing, critical thinking, confidence, and refine your thinking.
