The Monetary Value of Philosophy

Many a student wants to know: How much do my professors actually get paid? Can one, as a matter of course, make money as a Professor of Philosophy?

New data from UC Berkeley suggests: ABSOLUTELY!

Check out these numbers.

NOTE: I would most certainly need clarification on what “Lecturer” means here. In many cases I know of, this is a Graduate Teaching Assistant. Looking at mere pay here, then, may not tell the entire story since MOST GTA’s also have stipends, tuition remission, etc. So, there starting pay for a professor of philosophy? Over $100.000 per year.
