Careers in Humanities

The applicability of a Humanities degree is essentially endless. Instead of limiting yourself to a narrow specialty, a degree in the Humanities cultivates your universal knowledge base and develops a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world at large. A BA in Humanities will teach you how to articulate informed opinions, effectively communicate complex ideas, and analyze and formulate compelling arguments—an essential skill set that can be utilized in almost any job.

Peter Lynch, one of the most prolific fund managers on Wall Street, who increased Fidelity’s Magellan Fund from $18 million to $14 billion during his tenure, advocates the applicability of a Humanities degree: “As I look back on it now, it's obvious that studying history and philosophy was much better preparation for the stock market than, say, studying statistics. ... Logic is the subject that's helped me the most in picking stocks, if only because it taught me to identify the peculiar illogic of Wall Street."

Moreover, a Humanities degree is the perfect pre-professional foundation for future study. Test scores have consistently placed students of the Humanities as some of the highest ranking test takers for both the GRE and LSAT exams.

A Humanities degree translates into limitless career opportunities. Graduates with Humanities degrees have become diplomats, editors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, foreign correspondents, professors, interpreters, narrators, agents, book critics, composers, custom decorators, lobbyists, writers, and museum curators.
