What is philosophy?

Philosophy is the study of thought and the nature of existence. Learning philosophy teaches you problem solving, ethics, and generally introduces you to several new ways of thinking.

I can already read/write/speak, so why do I have to take literature/writing/speech?

There is a vast difference between normal, or conversational, communication and academic, or appropriate workplace, communication. Being able to read/write/speak in an academic/workplace setting is a vital skill for students to learn. Hiring managers often base hiring decisions less on technical skill, and more on being able to communicate appropriately, accurately, and with a degree of competence.
