We’ve all thought about how cool it would be to earn a philosophy degree, right? Theres only one problem – you won’t make a great living with this degree. Even students with a master’s degree in philosophy only make an average of $49,000 per year. This is substantially less than many other entry level jobs with just a bachelor’s degree. Unless you plan to write the next Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, you may want to switch majors and pursue a different degree. With that being said, Philosophy is one of those majors you can study from an online school for much cheaper. On top of this, the job outlook isn’t so great into the future either.
