The conventional mindset for any career oriented individual has been to go for a science or an engineering degree along with masters in management. However, with awareness and increasing thirst for knowledge, the arts and humanities stream has begun to develop a good demand in the international academic circles. As such, the subject of Arts may not be useful for wealth creation but it sure prompts you to ask the question 'why'.
As such, career in arts and humanities is not high paid but the demand and popularity has been on the rise over the past few years. The various aspects such as fine arts, art history, classical and modern languages, history, geography, literature are being focused strongly from all sides. Apparently, studying about arts gives an insight into the past, present and future of the civilizations.
The subjects in demand for Arts are French Literature, Continental Philosophy, Eighteenth century English poetry, impressionist painters of the nineteenth century. As for humanities, it is all about historic and contemporary events. The undergraduate university degree tends to differ from institution to institution and also country to country. Students of this course develop the ability to approach life with various standpoints and broaden their vision.
When it comes to employment, the demand has been quite high for such students. Those who pass out from top league universities have careers in analysis, verbal reasoning, language specific skills etc. similarly, students from humanities can make a career in research, academia, teaching and many other fields. Some of the best places for this stream are Harvard, Berkeley University, Cambridge University, Yale University etc.
