Career Pathways

The BA, Liberal Studies, along with other programs within the College of Arts and Humanities, strives to prepare our students for placement in their preferred careers upon graduation.  To accomplish this, CAH is focusing on Career Pathways where a student can discover direct paths from educational disciplines to careers with the competitive advantage it represents in today’s uncertain and dynamic economy.


A degree in Liberal Arts has long been considered
the most adaptable, 
with humanitarian and societal studies that
prepare graduates to enter a wide variety of careers.”

- Dinesh Paliwal

 

Career Pathways are small groups of occupations within a career cluster. Occupations within a pathway share common skills, knowledge, and interests which often come from specific departments within the college.

The data referred to below is taken from an extensive survey of over 12,000 College of Arts and Humanities graduates.  The data provides valuable insight as to which department might be best suited for your personalized career path.

"For some students, especially in the sciences,
the knowledge gained in college may be directly relevant to graduate study.

For almost all students, a liberal arts education works
in subtle ways to create a web of knowledge that will illumine
problems and enlighten judgment on innumerable occasions in later life."
 
- Derek Bok
