Congratulations to UWO Philosophy Major Alumnus Jeff Gerritt for winning a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing. Jeff says the skills he learned in his philosophy classes at UWO were a key to his success: “Once I became an editorial writer, the skills that I learned as a philosophy major at UW Oshkosh really came to the fore. The logical deductive reasoning to make arguments, that is very much part of editorial writing. I think it was invaluable that I was a philosophy major at UW Oshkosh and I had some very good teachers there. I got a lot out of it.” Read more of Jeff’s story here.
