Humanities (General) Degrees
Your military career has provided you several skills that can carry over nicely into a career. Depending on the amount of time that you've been in the service, there's a likelihood that you were deployed overseas. You've seen and experienced things that most civilians haven't. Therefore, these experiences can be applied effectively into a Teaching or Journalist career with a humanities degree. Government Officials often have military background - so if you have a drive for a political position, getting a Humanities degree will definitely get you going in the right direction.
Your military background can also easily transition you into the growing logistics field. With either an Associate's or Bachelor's in Humanities degree, you could find yourself in a fast-paced environment, working dispatch and assigning drivers to shipment runs or working in a warehouse distributing goods. Another possibility with this degree is being hired as an HR Professional - evaluating company personnel and setting goals for those who might need guidance.
Beyond the possible jobs just discussed, there are several other careers you can achieve with a humanities degree, such as:
- Government Worker
- Political operative
- Government Official
- HR professional
- Restaurant Critic
- Business Owner
Humanities degrees focus on the liberal arts, and allow the tactical and creative juices in one's mind to flow. There will be challenges in the field that are unlike standard careers. Humanities careers are mind-opening and often artistically inspiring. Many of these degrees can turn into generously paying careers.
