Monday, July 25, 2011
Some students have multiple academic interests, while others are unsure about what area of study they want to focus on during their college years. In either scenario, a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences can meet these individuals' needs.

Typically, a Liberal Arts and Sciences degree provides the student with a well-rounded and broad education including courses in mathematics, science, languages, the arts and history. However, students may wonder what exactly they can do with this degree after they graduate.

Katherine Hansen of, a career, job and college resource Web site, writes that the communications skills that Liberal Arts and Sciences majors acquire are highly sought after by employers.

According to, a higher education research organization, students who pursue a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences hone their writing and reading skills and broaden their knowledge of subjects across disciplines.
