9 Signs You're A Liberal Arts Major

From Sociology to Communications, we're the Liberal Arts.

From psychology to English to political science. Although these are all very different majors one thing they all have in common is that they are all under the liberal arts category.

1. You're always writing a paper.

And because of this, you probably also own your own printer since it costs too much to constantly be printing paper at the library every week. Every homework assignment is a paper because you never receive actual homework.

2. You're really good at skimming and finding main points.

Let's be honest, you've never actually read the textbook, You're just able to skim it enough to find quotes we can throw into our papers.

3. You can B.S. anything, but still manage to get a good grade.

Those papers you're always writing are not always your best work. However you, as liberal arts majors, are very good with words and are able to dance around the subject and still get the point across enough to receive a grade you can live with.

4. You cringe at the classes you see your STEM major friends taking.

Biology, genetics, organic chemistry, all with labs? No, no no. That sounds like Hell. Give me a public speaking, poetry, and philosophy class. You'd much rather be stuck turning in a new poem every week than dissect anything.

5. You're the 'go-to' among your friends to help them write their papers.

Just because you've never taken art history doesn't mean you can't and haven't written a few papers on it. You haven't even sat in on their class, but you're still able to help your friends write a six-paged paper on it.

6. You're sick of STEM majors sh*ting all over your major.

They couldn't last a day in your major. Just because you don't have to spend hours cramming over a review for a midterm that's a week away doesn't mean your major is easy. Yeah, you've only had to take one math class, and a couple science classes, but you're also taking POSC 212, POSC 225, POSC 105, and POSC 300 all at the same time, and no they are not the same classes, but only slightly harder.

7. You're constantly asked what you want to do with your major.

Because apparently being a journalism major isn't a big enough explanation.

8. You hate having to take unnecessary GE's

Seriously? Why would you have to take a Natural Disasters class when you're an English education major? It's not like you're ever going to use the cause of earthquakes while you're teaching.It's tedious, it's tiring, and you don't actually want to be there.

9. You're major actually allows you to be creative.

There is no absolute right or wrong answer because all your prompts are open-ended and as long as you have facts to back up your argument, you'll still get a decent grade.
