Israel Dominguez, director of economic and workforce development, had the gut feeling that liberal arts students possess skills that prepare them for a variety of careers beyond the academic world. He knew he had worked with many professionals in areas such as sales, marketing, or public relations who also hailed from a liberal arts background. But what could mere stories prove?
WSJ published a new report using Emsi’s profile analytics originally featured in our 2018 analysis, “Robot Ready: Human+ Skills for the Future of Work.” Here’s the key takeaway: Liberal arts grads show better (much better) outcomes than they typically get credit for. Not only do these grads land good careers, they also show greater versatility in the job market than STEM majors do. And while they may not earn as much as STEM grads immediately, their earning potential does grow over the course of their careers.
