Online Humanities Degrees

What can a humanities degree or training program do for me?

The best description of the humanities is the study of the human condition by analytic or critical means. This differs from the natural or social sciences which attempts the same by empirical means. This might mean you will study the classics, philosophy, history or the arts (or even all of them) to try and find out what it is that makes human beings tick. That has been the aim of all of those subject down the centuries at least and a humanities degree or training program will be attempting to teach you what all those bright and clever people before us found out.

What will a humanities degree qualify me to do?

The question is too broad really: a history degree will qualify you to be a historian or teacher of history (in part), a training program in the arts is a requirement to either work in the arts or to teach them. But the humanities as a whole? A degree or training program in the entire subject, the most important thing it teaches you is how to think. There are thousands upon thousands of jobs and careers out there that require a year or more of post-graduate training but where no one really minds what the first degree was in. Training in the humanities, whether a program or a degree, is simply a great preparation for the life ahead of you.
