After Graduation

Philosophers influence thinking in every field. Employers value philosophy’s critical thinking and in-depth analysis.

Visit the Hope College alumni page for info on resources and services As our graduates pursue their vocational calling, they turn to philosophy over and over again. Doctors use philosophy to learn how to care for patients, lawyers learn to define justice and theologians learn to communicate beliefs. Alumni go on to earn advanced degrees, teach others and work at non-profits, just to name a few.
