Humanities

General humanities majors, like other students with liberal-arts degrees, may find employment in the business sector with companies that value broad-based knowledge and skills in critical thinking and writing. Undergraduate studies in humanities can also be excellent preparation for work as a writer, editor, or public-relations specialist.

Students earning a bachelor’s degree in humanities may also be interested in careers as museum curators, archivists, librarians, or college-level humanities instructors. Typically, these careers will require additional graduate study and/or certification.

For more information on these careers and current salaries, please consult the Occupational Outlook Handbook at www.bls.gov/ooh/.
