Philosophy

What some of our graduates have to say

Christine Selfe, '00

"I grew up fascinated with religions of all kinds. So much of our culture is influenced by religion. By studying religion you learn more about humankind. As part of the requirements for the major, I've taken many course in psychology, history, and sociology which are a good educational foundation for the study of philosophy and religion. I studied at the General Theological Seminary in New york city and I am now an ordained Episcopal priest."

Rory Osbrink, '00

"I chose philosophy because I like to theorize and think about all aspects of human life. It is a great major to satisfy your curiosity as well as to organize your thoughts. Having majored in philosophy has helped me become more eloquent in both public speaking and writing. Writing is one of my life's passions. I taught for two years at a high school and as a counselor. I'm currently a graduate student pursuing a master's in education."

Sociology

Sociology with Criminology concentration

From May to August 2007, Sara Collins, an undergraduate Sociology with Criminology Concentration major, had an exciting opportunity for an internship at Abt Associates, Inc. of Bethesda, Maryland, a for-profit consulting company that performs research and develops recommendations to guide various governmental programs. During the duration of the internship, Sara had the opportunity to apply the knowledge that was gained through courses taken at Gallaudet University through analyzing quantitative data and report writing. "The experience at Abt gave me an opportunity to grow and further develop myself as a young professional entering the working world," says Sara.

Jessi Gupta, '02
Sociology-Criminology Concentration

I originally wanted to get a degree in law. I was encouraged to major in something other than pre-law to broaden my horizons, so I elected to major in sociology with a criminology concentration. It is the best choice I could have made and I fell in love with the subject. Professors inspired me to think outside the box and to believe in my own abilities. I'm now a federal employee for FinCEN, an agency focused in providing assistance to law enforcement agencies in tracking all forms of financial crime, such as money laundering and terrorism.
