and thus acquire a B.A. Philosophy - Teacher of Philosophy.
CAREER OPTIONS AND FURTHER STUDY
1. A single-subject graduate in philosophy is professionally qualified
for the following:
professional and research work in philosophy
jobs in cultural and public institutions, libraries, publishing
houses, newspapers, magazines, television and other media
writing and translating philosophical and other theoretical
texts - educational work
as a teacher of philosophy (with above-mentioned additional
classes) in secondary school.
These all demand constant improvement of the graduate's knowledge
