Careers

Many students ask, "What jobs can I get with a Liberal Arts Major?" The simplest answer is: many. An advantage to a liberal arts degree is that, upon graduation, you will find many opportunities because you have a broader base of knowledge than does a candidate who has specialized in only one discipline. The skills focused on in the liberal arts are applicable to many careers. Some possible careers for which a liberal arts degree provides basic skills include:
 
Advertising
Business
Communications
Entertainment (film, music, theater, etc.)
Government and Law
Journalism
Media Arts
Medicine
Public Relations
Public Service
Science
Teaching
Writing and Editing

These career areas are just a sampling of ones you may choose to enter. You might also have the opportunity to work as, for instance, a women’s rights advocate, a museum/theater donations supervisor, or a director of a tutoring center. For a good discussion of liberal arts education, see the website of the Association of American Universities and Colleges and the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC).
