Like many students, you probably plan to attend college so that you can find a good job after graduation. By studying the humanities, you can add an additional dimension to this goal.

In addition to the technical skills that college provides, as a student of the humanities, you can:

  • Acquire a better understanding of the context in which you live.
  • Gain insights into who you are, where you came from, and where you are going as a member of society.
  • Obtain valuable analysis and critical thinking skills, intellectual experience in a wide range of topics, and an ability to see humanity from a larger perspective.

These are all skills developed with a Humanities education and all skills consistently listed as the most important criteria for employment. Have you ever wondered what you will do with a major in a Humanities field?
