What Can I Do With a Liberal Arts Degree?
Perhaps the most persistent -- and often most annoying -- question college students
hear throughout their years (second only to "What's your major?") is "So what are
you going to do with your major?"
The truth, for many of them, is that they simply don't know. And that is totally OK.
While choosing a major will help you prepare for a career in a specific field, it can also provide a solid basis for pursuing a career in a seemingly dissimilar field. For example, history majors can go into government, journalism or even museum work, and it's not unusual for theater majors to work in business.
Before you think about what you're going to do with your major, find out what you can you do with your major.
