Despite never completing a degree in philosophy, I can't over-emphasize how foundational my philosophy and professional ethics courses at Buffalo State college have been in both my further education and my career. The easy trap to fall into with philosophy is to say that the courses taught me "how to think," but that's not quite right. Philosophy at Buffalo State College taught me how to examine my thinking, to think in a way that's more rigorous, conscious, and intentional, and to be sure that I know what meaning-making frames are implicit in my thinking and what other frames might be available. As a practicing therapist and current graduate student, I still use these ways of thinking daily in both my work and my studies.
