Today’s infographic looks at the value of a liberal arts degree and the job opportunities liberal arts students can look into. One of the greatest advantages to an arts degree is the focus on creative writing.
The majority of U.S. business leaders say the amount of knowledge the candidate has in a field, as well as applied skills, are more important factors than where candidates attended school or what their college major was.
The major challenge that all these new efforts must confront, however, is why – despite copious data and anecdotes that support the fact that students with liberal arts educations have skills that employers say they’re looking for, earn more over the course of their lives, are more likely to get promotions, and are generally happier and better citizens – their message has not been getting through.
Just getting a job in this economy is difficult enough. Getting one with a liberal arts degree is simply masochistic. Don't spend half a decade and thousands of dollars only to join the rest of the English majors busking in a subway. Instead, educate yourself with these valuable, respectable, and totally free online resources.*
