According to Indeed
, the #1 job site in the world, “a liberal arts degree falls into the humanities category and is the general study of art, literature, language, history and philosophy.” While these fields don’t immediately tie to a specific occupation (such as studying engineering = being an engineer), they instead provide you with the skills needed to succeed in many different careers.
Liberal arts degrees cultivate cultural awareness, self-awareness and ethics, training students to be culturally sensitive and helping them become invaluable assets to any company and department. Liberal arts degree students make great leaders as they possess skills that allow them to work with employees of all types.1
An article by CNBC says that, “Liberal art degrees emphasize soft skills, or talents that are harder to quantify — such as effective communication, strong writing, critical thinking, creativity and emotional intelligence — rather than hard skills, like the ability to perform open-heart surgery or Python programming.”
