The umbrella of humanities and social sciences encompasses a wide range of subjects, all with the same focus: human life, society and civilisation.
It’s hard to think of a broader subject, but that’s the beauty of it!
If you have students who have chosen to embark on a humanities or social sciences degree, they have a wide array of options they can choose from when it comes to applying for a university course. These include:
- English Literature
And with this range of options comes a range of career pathways. All of the subjects listed above are designed to equip students with transferable skills to help them succeed in the world of work, and can consequently open up a number of job opportunities.
In this new instalment of our international careers blog series, we’ll take a closer look at studying humanities and social sciences subjects - what they are, the careers pathways they can lead to, and how students can make their applications stand out.
