Can humanities help you in your future career?

Wondering how a philosophy class will help you in your future career? A recent New York Times post by Nicolas Kristof answers the question,”What use could the humanities be in a digital age?”

“University students focusing on the humanities may end up, at least in their parents’ nightmares, as dog-walkers for those majoring in computer science. But, for me, the humanities are not only relevant but also give us a toolbox to think seriously about ourselves and the world.”

Read Kristof’s post to learn more about his take on how 21st century philosophy provides relevant and important context for issues such as immigration, politics, inequality, and even food.
