Philosophy Opportunities and Involvement

There are many ways to incorporate what you learn in the classroom to involvement on and off campus. From clubs and competitions, to research and international study, you will find a variety of outlets to utilize the critical and analytical thinking, argumentative writing and detailed reading comprehension you will be learning.

Having an internship experience is one of the top reasons graduates are hired following graduation. Recognizing this, Simpson places a high value on making sure all our students have the opportunity to participate in this important component of their education.

Studying philosophy provides you with versatile and transferable skills that employers value. Simpson's close proximity to Des Moines, one of the most dynamic cities in the Midwest, provides many opportunities for you to practice what you are learning and, at the same time, explore different career options. Your philosophy professors, along with the Career Development Office, will assist you preparing for and locating meaningful internships.

Recent internships have included the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, Dwolla Corporation and the Center for Rural Affairs, State of Nebraska.
