"As a student majoring in English and Philosophy, I remember all too well the family dinners where relatives asked me what on earth I would do with a degree that wasn’t “practical” like business or nursing. What they failed to see was that a humanities education actually well prepared me for the workplace. I developed valuable language and critical thinking skills and graduated with a continued thirst for knowledge."
