"Arts and Humanities. Don’t Leave College Without Them!”
This is not the advice most often heard among students. We all know not to leave college without a plan, a skill-set, a career path, but without the arts and humanities? Why not?
That’s the question students and young professionals will answer in this guide. Through their voices, they share what you might want to know now about why and how the arts and humanities can play a foundational and transformative role in your lives and careers, whether you are thinking about going into the art world, into business, medicine, engineering, environmental science, or any other profession. The Arts and Humanities are your ticket to a successful, transformative and meaningful career.
This guide provides you with an overview of what the arts and humanities are and what kind of professions you can go into with a degree in these fields. You will hear directly from other young professionals and students who share their first-hand experiences, uncensored. You will also find concrete examples about possible career options and opportunities through personal essays, student interviews, portraits of young professionals, information about career choices, facts and figures, and answers to some of your most commonly asked questions.
