Military Online Colleges: Liberal Arts and Humanities

Created by: MSG Randall High, U.S. Army (ret)

Military friendly liberal arts & humanities colleges open the door to countless opportunities in many growing fields.

Graduates of military friendly liberal arts & humanities colleges are prepared for careers in many exciting fields, including sociology, teaching, psychology and economics. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that a study completed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) showed that hiring managers are most interested in a potential employee's job skills, not necessarily their college major. Liberal arts & humanities programs provide students with a comprehensive foundation in skills such as communication and problem solving--qualities that employers look for in prospective employees. In fact, a 2007 NACE survey revealed that the most important skill interviewers are seeking in an employee is effective communication.

Liberal arts schools offer a variety of degree options. An associate degree may suffice for many entry-level positions in the social sciences and business arena. Bachelor's degrees are the most common option for individuals interested in teaching English or history or becoming an editor. Students who go on to earn a master's degree or Ph.D. may be seeking employment as a college professor or academic researcher.

Liberal arts & humanities programs: after graduation

After earning a degree from one of the many military friendly liberal arts & humanities colleges, students who decide to pursue a career in sociology or political science can look forward to growing employment opportunities, according to the BLS. Overall, employment is expected to grow by 21 percent between 2008 and 2018. According to the BLS, median annual wages for sociologists as of May 2009 were $69,620 and $104,090 for political scientists.
