Liberal Arts majors are important

To The Students Following Their Passion By Majoring In Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts majors are just as important as STEM majors.

It's not easy being the odd one out, but sometimes that's how I feel in college. Most of my friends chose majors like STEM, but I don't care for science and it isn't my strong suit. I love liberal arts, not science.

My parents spend a lot of money for me to study abroad so I'm not going to spend my college time on a degree that I hate.

Sometimes I do feel anxiety because it'll be harder for me to find a job than a science or business major. But I want to make it clear that it will be okay. As long as you believe in yourself, you will find a job that you are passionate about with your liberal arts degree.

The world really is your oyster, as long as you have faith.

The world is beginning to recognize non-science majors more and more. The jobs and degrees we hold as liberal arts majors is being seen as just as important and those held by science majors.

Other people might not take your major as seriously as you'd like, some of them might even act as if your classes aren't as important or challenging, but they're wrong. Just like computer science majors struggle with their coding assignments, English majors struggle with writing 8+ page papers analyzing a literary work.

You might not be discovering the cure for cancer, but you are passing on knowledge and literature to younger generations and that is important. You're doing something that you love, and that is what really matters.

Do not feel pressured to choose some sort of science degree because they have "important" jobs and work. The work of liberal arts majors is just as important and creative as any other major out there.

You chose a major that would help you follow your dreams, and that's the most important thing.
