Congratulations! You’ve graduated with your Liberal Arts degree and it’s time to enter the workforce. But what can you do with your degree?

We get asked this question routinely and our answer is always the same.

“So many things!”

A Liberal Arts degree is designed to provide scholars with a wide range of skills and experiences to build critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. This type of degree is comprised of the humanities, arts, and sciences. While some believe that this type of degree is less focused and therefore less valuable, we couldn’t disagree more.

In a job market like we have today, having a broad range of skills and the ability to think critically is often looked at favorably by employers. Especially those who are not looking for specific trade roles. If an employer has the option of hiring one person who could potentially advise, communicate, or collaborate across many areas of business effectively versus hiring multiple people with more specified skill sets, which do you think they would financially prefer?

So, what can you do with a Liberal Arts degree?

Here are a few of the top roles we see our candidates considered and selected for:

  • Analyst
  • Behavioral Health Advocate
  • Business Analyst
  • Communications Specialist
  • Data Analyst
  • Financial Analyst

More and more often we’ve also seen individuals with Liberal Arts degrees hired for more specialized or technical roles thanks to their ability to communicate complex topics and data with a wide array of individuals.
