Prepare for an entire field
Humanities@Work is intended for the student who wants to graduate college prepared to take on an entire field of careers, rather than one specific job.
As an incoming freshman, maybe you’re unsure about your future career, but you know you’re interested in the field of art, culture, and entertainment. Enroll in Humanities@Work and take a variety of courses that will sharpen the skills essential to pursuing a career in that field:
- Take a playwriting workshop to exercise your imaginative thinking
- A public speaking class to overcome nerves and strengthen verbal communication
- Discover your digital creativity in graphic design principles
- Explore a course in ethics to deepen your emotional intelligence
With these skills honed throughout four years, you’ll be ready to take on the world of art, culture, and entertainment in a variety of different jobs within the field; for example: as a content specialist, gallery manager, marketing associate, television writer, graphic artist – your possibilities will be wide-open!
Prepare for graduate school
There are so many interesting career paths that require a masters degree. Humanities@Work is the ideal program for students who are not ready to commit to a career as an undergraduate.
Say you have an interest in helping people, but you don't know exactly how you want to pursue that passion yet: art therapy? lawyer? advice columnist? With Humanities@Work, you can explore a variety of art, business, and writing courses without having to commit to one major!
After four years of exploring your strongest skills and greatest passions, then you can choose to go on to law school, a master's in art therapy, or even decide not to pursue a graduate degree and try your hand at journalism.
These are just a few examples of how you can shape your career and create your own path to changing the world with the Humanities@Work program.
