Arts & Humanities

While special knowledge of specific subject matter is necessary for certain occupational settings, not all employment settings require specialization. Many 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.
