IS AN ARTS DEGREE USEFUL?

Arts professors help you learn to communicate clearly, work collaboratively, and think critically and imaginatively.

A 2013 survey conducted by the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that more than 90% of employers want colleges “to place more emphasis on helping students develop five key learning outcomes, including critical thinking, complex problem-solving, written and oral communication, and applied knowledge in real-world settings.”

In addition, a 2018 study by the Royal Bank of Canada predicts skill mobility and emotional intelligence to be new competitive advantages for Canadian workers over the next 10 years. These are precisely the outcomes that courses in the Arts foster.
