Are you worried that the subjects you’re interested in—things like culture, identity, antiracism, and social justice—don’t correspond to majors that lead to good jobs? Are comments like “how are you going to make money with that?” nagging at you? This panel of young professionals is here to ease your worries and show how getting a degree in the “liberal arts” (which includes sociology, anthropology, ethnic studies, history, English…basically, everything in the humanities and social sciences) is an exciting career path.
