    I think there is a negative view towards humanities, as other people have mentioned. At the end of the day, there's no prescribed path to success though. Pursuing stem just for the sake of economic success is unlikely to yield any results. It sounds cliche but I truly believe that pursuing a path you genuinely enjoy will maximize the chances for genuine success and fulfillment. @Bethany Heinrich @Tiffany Pham @Jasmine Oang - what do you think?

    I think that a lot of companies are open to Liberal Arts majors at the entry-level, and then after that, it’s more about the experiences you’ve gathered since. So if you major in the Liberal arts, I would just be sure to get experience in extracurricular activities in school as well as side hustles during your main job after school ends, so that you can bolster your overall experience for your career path.

      I couldn't agree more. It's really important to keep the bigger picture in mind and open yourself up to different opportunities.

    I think that no matter how we want to spin it, sadly money does run the world. And when students realize that jobs in the arts and humanities tend to get less pay than those in STEM, nobody wants to do a job with no guarantee of success.
