Who says liberal arts degrees don’t lead to rewarding, successful, lucrative careers? (Certainly not us—we’ve written before about six well-paying jobs for liberal arts graduates.)
The truth is that a degree in the liberal arts or humanities can open a lot of doors for your career, and may even make you stand out among other applicants when applying for jobs with some companies. In fact, there are tons of cases where liberal arts graduates have gone on to not only do well in their careers, but also change the world.
Whether your focus is on history, economics, literature, social work, or something else altogether, an education in liberal arts will prepare you for your career by teaching you essential skills that employers are looking for.
