Humanities

A humanities education fosters creativity, empathy, and a broader perspective, making it suitable for careers in fields like writing, journalism, teaching, research, cultural preservation, and even certain aspects of business, marketing, and public relations. However, it's important to consider the job market and potential income in your chosen humanities field. While many careers in humanities are rewarding, some may require additional specialization, networking, or diversification of skills to find suitable employment.
