What jobs can you get with a Bachelor's degree in humanities?
Humanities degree graduates have a wealth of skills that are desirable to many different types of employers. During the course of their studies, Humanities students learn a great deal about many topics, improve their writing skills, learn to work on deadlines, learn the finer points of rhetorical argument and fine tune their research skills. Such a variety of skills is welcome in any of a number of occupations without the need for higher degree studies. The proper use of your electives can focus your degree program to a specialized field or you can leave it wide open to allow yourself the full variety of career paths. Finance Careers There are a great number of finance related careers that benefit from the problem solving and communications skills that come out of attaining a Humanities degree. Some of these include accounting, banking and insurance work. Going into this type of field will require some background knowledge of finance topics like accounting and statistics which can be handled by taking multiple elective courses with this focus. Retail Management The practical nature of the Humanities graduate works well in the field of retail management. You need to be quick thinking as well as quick on your feet for this career. If your management skills are good it can be easy to quickly scale the management ladder and gain a position that has less to do with retail and more to do with management. Teaching English as a Foreign Language Humanities degree students often have the desire to help others and to learn about unfamiliar ways of life. Many Humanities graduates choose to teach English as a foreign language in their own countries and in the far flung corners of the earth. It can be exciting to travel to a distant location and learn to live in ways you had not imagined. Teaching the language is a skill that can take you anywhere in the world. All it takes is a certification course along with your degree to get started. Other careers that make use of a Humanities degree include:
- Marketing and Advertising
- Public Relations
- Brand Management
- Police Officer
- IT Consultant
- Computer Programmer
- Insurance Agent
- Government Jobs
- Social Work
- Occupational Therapy

Jobs with a Degree in CommunicationsHere are some suggestions:I am going for a degree in Communications with my major being Advertising. I know their are many jobs for that de…gree, like media, journalism (spelling?) Advertising, creating and presenting speeches. Any job that communicates through Ads, voice, pictures, or writings. I think it's a great degree.I graduated in July, 2004 with a BA in Communications from the University of Colorado. Just 3 weeks later, I obtained a Management Trainee position with a reputable retail store. The pay is great and the work is both fun and challenging. As soon as I complete the program, which is designed to last 6 months to a year, I will be able to move to another store location and become that store manager. The benefits are unbelievable and there is a lot of earning potential.If you have a communications degree with a major in advertising, you sound well suited to a public relations position. You will have interaction with clients on a regular basis, you will have frequent opportunities to use your writing ability and other communications skills, and you will get many great perks and freebies associated with being the client's voice in the media. There is often travel involved, too. Advertising is a great field. I'm a copywriter, and I love it.It depends on what you mean by "communication". I have a masters degree in Communication but my focus is Interpersonal Communication which is very different from journalism and advertising. With that degree (even just my B.A.) I was eligible to do training (going into organizations and helping them figure out how their communication is and is NOT working for them and helping tweak it), with a teaching certification I could teach at a high school (they are now requiring a communication course), there are research positions, image consultations, etc. I'm not as sure what you can do with a Bachelors as I am with a Master's. I think it just really depends on which part of Comm you find interesting.
Here's a link I found at a university that has a letters degree.... http://www.ou.edu/cas/classics/what.html .
there is no "Law" undergraduate degree or bachelors degree. You have to get a four year degree and then go to law school and you become a doctor of jurisprudence immediately. …Whoever posted that ^^ Did not do their research at all. There is a degree in business law. It is not considered a Law degree like an attorney would have; it would be more like a legal assistant or giving making sure cooperations are complying with the laws and regulations to stay in business. Take a look at this website: http://www.degree.com/criminal-justice/business-law-degree
Answer Just about any company will hire a person with a bachelors degree, even if it has nothing to do with the job you are being hired for. A bachelors degree is… the selling point on a resume. Go to Monster.com to put up your resume, you will be suprised at how many jobs you qualify for when you do a search. Answer A bachelor's degree in what? The BA or BS isn't what it used to be. If you check the paper or Monster, you'll see that a college degree is required just to get into an interview on some pretty basic jobs, jobs that could be had with a High school diploma just 20 years ago. Employers like to see specific training in a certain area. Where years ago a BA in almost anything could land you a management job, today companies are looking for advanced degrees for their higher level positions. If you're about to graduate, you may wish to pick a specific field of study and go on for a Master's degree. If you are just starting out, consider looking for summer intern jobs in your field of study. Employers like practical experience just as much as they like degrees. Answer A bachelors degree generally qualifies a person for a position in which other candidates do not posses a bachelors degree. In other words, it is an honest self-marketing tool.
Answer In New England, there are quite a few jobs available for mental/behavioral health counselors, specifically residential counselors working in group homes a…nd crisis centers. Also many non-prfit MH agencies are happy to employ counselors with only BA/BS's, and you might find companies that have tuition reimbursement plans, if you'd like to go back to school for your MA/MS - especially if the higher degree you are seeking can be applicable to that job. The hourly pay varies - I've found that Massachusettes pays a little more than NH or VT, but the cost of living is also higher in MA than the other two, so the take-home pay is comparable.
RNs are not limited to employment as bedside nurses in hospitals. Registered nurses are employed by physicians, attorneys, insurance companies, private industry, school …districts, ambulatory surgery centers and fire departments, among others. Some registered nurses are independent consultants who work for themselves, while others work for large manufacturers or chemical companies. Research Nurses conduct or assist in the conduct of research or evaluation (outcome and process) in many areas such as biology, psychology, human development, and health care systems.
