As one who has struggled to define a career after majoring in the humanities, this article resonated with me. It’s tough to pursue such studies when they do not directly lead to job opportunities. They can, however, lead people to so much more – to focus and higher thinking, to abstraction, to expression – things society sorely needs. My advice to anyone studying the humanities at the moment is to delve into your studies with a passion but also make sure you take the time to develop hard skills (research, databases, HTML, etc.), pursue internships to gain work experience, and get to know as many people as you can – your network is priceless.
