A major doesn't define your career

With Arts and Sciences, you’ll have the leeway to chart your own path to find and pursue the career you want.

Our graduates are singer-songwriters and creative chemists. Digital marketers and dolphin trainers. Authors, illustrators and oceanographers. Crime fighters and climatologists. Reformers, researchers, money managers and more.

Although you have a major (or more than one!) to focus on, you'll also get a broad education, inside and outside the classroom. You'll build your resume, but you'll gain skills that lay the foundation for your future.

In fact, employers aren't only looking for on-the-job knowledge that you'll gain in the classrooms and internships. According to the Forbes Human Resources Council, they seek knowledgeable workers with flexible skills, such as:

  • A growth mindset -- Employers want to hire people who look for ways to grow professionally and personally.
  • Continuous learning -- Agile learners have a better chance at long-term success.
  • Critical thinking -- Businesses look for innovative problem solvers.
  • Adaptability and grit -- Overcoming obstacles builds confidence.
  • Resilience and curiosity -- Curious people pursue new concepts with passion.
  • Flexibility -- Employees who adapt with changing circumstances can stay ahead.
  • Dedication -- Effective workers do what’s best for their teams.
  • Coaching mindset -- Effective leaders connect, engage and collaborate.
  • Comfort with ambiguity -- Versatile workers are comfortable with constantly shifting situations.
  • Ability to thrive in a virtual environment -- Tomorrow’s workers know how to leverage responsiveness, technology and visibility in remote roles.

Don't just take our word for it. Meet a few alumni who have launched their flexible careers through the College of Arts and Sciences.
