AAC&U Refutes the Myth of the Unemployed Humanities Major

The newest LEAP Challenge blog post refutes the myth of the unemployed humanities major. LEAP Challenge Blog Editor Wilson Peden notes that, “We need people studying the humanities, just like we need people studying every other discipline. It’s up to individual students to choose their own educational pathways and majors according to their interests, abilities, and yes, their employment prospects. But they should do so based on accurate information, not myths….We need more and better-educated college graduates in every discipline, and we need all those graduates to be equipped with a broad base of knowledge and intellectual skills that cut across disciplines.”  Follow The LEAP Challenge blog at http://www.aacu.org/blog.
