Interdisciplinary studies in the humanities will help you develop your skills in self-expression (both in writing and in oral presentation), objective analysis and critical evaluation, invaluable tools in later life. A humanities course can lead to a wide range of career options in, for example, teaching, publishing, the media, journalism, local government, voluntary agencies or research. Many employers prefer to employ graduates with a broad-based liberal arts education, rather than recruit graduates who have specialized in only one discipline.
A humanities course will also provide you with a solid basis for pursuing further vocational training in administration, finance, management, librarianship and other sectors.
