Humanities Students Poised for Success

Are you interested in pursuing a humanities degree but worried that it might dictate or limit your career possibilities? Don't be! A survey conducted among major U.S. employers in 2013 indicates that humanities grads are among those best poised for long-term success in a practically unlimited range of career options. The study, published in April, reveals that over 90% of hiring executives value solid communication, critical thinking, and intercultural skills over career-specific degree training. And most employers report that they would like to see universities place greater academic emphasis on liberal arts training regardless of major, with 74% of respondents identifying a broad education in the liberal arts and sciences as the best way to prepare for success in today's global economy.
