Up to about $15.00 per hour in most areas of the country some areas more and some areas less.. Do not expect a career with this degree, it is really just a stepping stone to a Bachelor's degree. You will likely get yourself a customer serevice position at a reasonable company if you are lucky in our current economy. It is better than no degree but certainly not a life changing course of study. I wish you the best of luck with it.

*****************************************

It's true you won't be able to jump into a high paying job but I wouldn't say it's going to limit your chances of getting one. Liberal Arts is a general education on a variety of subjects rather than one particular subject. You can - if you decide to get into it more - continue to a B.A. or B.S Liberal Arts degree with Social Sciences, Economics, History, Literature or Psychology (among others) as a more defined major. With a BA you could then teach any of those subjects.

These days, employers say they look for skills rather than degrees - good communication skills first, next - initiative, a good work ethic, a team player (although I don't see how they can determine the last 2 from an interview other than taking your word on it) plus you must have good critical thinking and analytical skills for quick problem solving and also good interpersonal skills. The National Assoc of Colleges & Employers (NACE) says these are just the kind of abilities honed in the L.A. coursework and that LA graduates have an advantage over other applicants because of their knowledge on many subjects. They can work in a variety of industries and are capable of entry level - all the way up to management positions. That of course depends on the individual (NOT your degree). Bottom line - if you're passionate about learning and enthusiastic in your job interviews you will be able to find a good job at a stable work environment. And according to NACE having the ability to confidentially articulate your skills is a hallmark of Liberal Arts training.
