Major: Philosophy (This Major's Salary over time)
For philosophy majors, be very sure that you look at the philosophy program's course offerings. If you are interested in philosophical ethics, Santa Clara is a great university. However, if you are looking to specialize in metaphysics or epistemology, you may want to look at other schools. This is not to suggest that the faculty is top heavy with ethic specialties, quite the opposite in fact. The philosophy department at SCU has a broad and impressive rage of specialties; however, much of their talent is used to contribute to the wonderful and expansive ethics program at the university, rather than their individual areas of study. You will be well prepared if you come to SCU, prepared for teaching or graduate work, but its more a question about your level of interest in certain philosophical schools and the level of balanced engagement that is proffered by the course offerings.

Finally, if at all possible, visit the campus several times both with and without your parents. It is important that you get an accurate perception of the social life on and off campus before making a life changing decision.
