Liberal arts degrees are still popular among college students today. While a liberal arts degree may not have the job preparation sparkle that some technical degree programs feature, a good quality liberal arts education can help prepare a young person to successfully take on life.
Some degrees in this field include foreign languages. While knowing an additional language isn’t exactly a job skill (unless you get into the translation field), it is a tremendous bonus and is something that should be highlighted on your job resume. And while most students major in a popular usage language, such as Spanish or French or Japanese, some students still put in some work on old languages like Latin.
Other students receive a calling into religious studies. Majoring in a religious studies degree can either prepare a young person for a career of working within a religion, as a foundation for continuing on with a graduate degree, or merely as four years of enjoyable study. More school options
And liberal arts can certainly help prepare students for further professional graduate school, possibly in law or medicine. While many medical students may prefer a science based undergraduate major, the arts can also help prepare young students for graduate degree programs. More on medical school option.
