The Diablo Valley College Philosophy Program gives you the opportunity to study basic questions about the meaning and purpose of human life. Studying philosophy is a great way to sharpen your critical thinking skills and gain a better understanding of one’s self and humanity as a whole.
You can learn more about these options and the requirements in our catalog.
We know that navigating degrees and certificate requirements can be tricky. Once you have enrolled at DVC, you can schedule an appointment with a counselor to discuss which option is best for you.
Although some students are able to get an entry-level position after completing the program, most students transfer to a four-year university to gain a bachelor's degree. Those interested in a career in philosophy often teach or research at the university level. These careers often require more than a bachelor’s degree.
For more information on possible career options, please visit the Career Center, schedule an appointment with a counselor, or contact one of our faculty and staff members. Please note that you cannot meet with a counselor or staff member until you are enrolled at DVC.
Diablo Valley College offers degree and certificate programs in a variety of subjects. For a complete listing, see certificates and degrees.
