Humanities Grads Gainfully Employed and Happy

The American Academy of Arts & Sciences, based on data from the U.S. Census and other government sources, plus Gallup polling of workers nationwide, released a report on “The State of the Humanities 2018: Graduates in the Workforce and Beyond.” The report indicates that, contrary to prevailing sentiment, humanities graduates are gainfully employed and holding positions of authority, and are equally as satisfied with their careers/salaries as those who majored in STEM fields.

This report is part of AAA&S’s ongoing Humanities Indicators project.
