WHY DO A LIBERAL ARTS DEGREE?

A liberal arts degree will help you explore to the general field of Humanities and Social sciences at a foundation level, so you can make an informed choice about your future after this. One can check out what one’s talents and competencies are before narrowing down to a discipline after your degree. This helps to adapt to newer careers that may arise in a fast-changing world. Employers look for candidates who are adaptable and can fulfil multiple roles and functions across the organisation and can provide innovation. The rapidly changing world is opening up to new careers that were not even heard of five years ago: A social celebrity manager, a fun and entertainment officer for a corporate company, a blog aesthetics designer, online course content writer. There may be some new kinds of future jobs required for which we need a work force with a broad-based set of skills who have the ability to think and learn on the job. Increasingly, liberal arts degrees are looking to fulfil that requirement.
