Humanities at Work

Studying the humanities can help students work more effectively and creatively in any career pathway they choose.

The skills developed in the humanities are highly prized in workplaces, allowing our students to be vital members of a flourishing workplace regardless of the industry they enter. Think about this. More than half of Americans work with people from different cultures while even more employees engage in descriptive writing for their jobs. Humanities studies are ripe to prepare our students for a lifetime of success.
