  • Scope of Humanities as a Career

Students who major in humanities (English, history, sociology, foreign languages, etc.) are known for their sharp analytical skills, but how does a nuanced understanding of nineteenth century literature translate into a pay check once you’re out of college? The pay Scale College Salary Report includes a number of career paths available to humanities majors that require right brain thinking and have high earning potential. Creativity and critical thinking skills are valuable assets to many employers, especially when supplemented with additional technical skills or training.

A surprising number of Senior Marketing Directors hold a bachelor’s degree in English Literature. With a median mid-career salary of more than $100,000, that’s a good argument to use against anybody who says English is a waste of time. Other popular, high-paying jobs popular with English majors are Executive Editor, Content Strategist, Editorial Director and Senior Technical Writer.

Just because you major in the humanities, it doesn’t mean that you should never set foot in the computer science department. In fact, picking up a few tech skills can really pay off. For example, a Copywriter who aspires to work online, would, unsurprisingly, benefit from basic proficiency in blogging, html, or content management.
