ABOUT THIS GUIDE
Arts and Humanities. Don’t Leave College Without Them!
This is not the advice most often heard among students. We all know not to leave college with- out a plan, a skill-set, a career path, but without the arts and humanities? Why not? Why not? That’s the question students and young professionals will answer in this guide. Through their voices, they share what you might want to know now about why and how the arts and hu- manities can play a foundational and transforma- tive role in your lives and careers, whether you are thinking about going into the art world, into business, medicine, engineering, environmental science, or any other profession. The Arts and Humanities are your ticket to a successful, trans- formative and meaningful career. This guide provides you with an overview of what the arts and humanities are and what kind of pro- fessions you can pursue. This guide is meant to inspire you to explore more options for yourself and others. You will hear directly from young professionals and students who share their first- hand experiences, uncensored. You will hear from professors who explain what you can learn in dif- ferent fields. You will also find concrete examples about possible career options and opportunities through personal essays, student interviews, por- traits of young professionals, information about career choices, facts and figures, and answers to some of your most commonly asked questions. This guide is meant to, well, guide. It is, admitted- ly incomplete, but I hope it inspires you to follow your passion and pursue creative opportunities as you envision your future.
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
