Arts & Humanities: Don't Leave College Without Them




Gaining expertise in more than one field will give you an edge in the job market, and it will help you develop the toolkit to adapt to our changing and very complex world from multiple perspec- tives. That’s why the material in this section is all about learning across fields and disciplines.

Ultimately, it all boils down to one thing: finding your purpose. You want to learn about the arts or humanities? Wonderful. You don't? That's great too. Just make sure you make that decision for yourself and because you are informed about what the arts and humanities are, what they can teach you, and what they can add to your professional paths. And just promise me one thing: stay true to yourself, and be proud of what you do.
