I'm sure this question has been asked a million times but I'm going to go ahead and ask it anyway. Is a Philosophy degree worth my time and money? There's almost no arguing that if I want to earn lots of money there are degrees that are in much higher demand that will almost certainly help me achieve that goal much easier than a Philosophy degree will. So if I was to take a degree in Philosophy it would be for the sake of taking a Philosophy degree and the love of knowledge. However, is it really necessary to take a degree in Philosophy to pursue Philosophy? I don't see myself ever wanting to dedicate my entire life to Philosophy but I would still consider it to be one of the most valuable things in life. I have actually already applied for a Computer Science degree and have already received conditional offers but its not too late for me to change my mind. Computer Science is something that I am also interested in and it will also mean having great graduate prospects.
