Literature and Philosophy

Liberal Arts and Social Sciences
While special knowledge of specific subject matter is necessary for certain occupational settings, not all employment settings require specialization. Some employers prefer liberal arts graduates who possess broad liberal skills such as: problem solving, critical thinking, management and administration and communication. These functional transferable skills combined with specific content knowledge are most useable and marketable in a broad span of occupational settings.
