Humanities

The question is asked often. “What can I do with a Humanities major?”

The answer is simple: Any job that will require you to read and understand difficult material, that expects you to write clearly and compellingly, and that demands effective communication skills. In other words, your career options are endless.

Now, of course, some jobs call for particular skills — such as engineering, social work, or accounting — and there are majors and graduate degrees in those subjects. Yet, success in most jobs will also include mastering the skills that are at the heart of the humanities major: reading, writing, speaking, learning a foreign language, and of course, thinking.
