However, that’s obviously not only option: while some Humanities programs (such as Philosophy or Philology) may seem slightly unrelated to real life, students learn various useful skills, which help to find a job in many industries.

Moreover, during the studying you will hone your logic, self-discipline, language, and speech.

Graduate programs in Humanities usually welcome students from different background with various undergraduate degrees, including Social Sciences and even Natural Sciences or Mathematics. It’s more important to demonstrate your general academic abilities as well as the motivation to study on the program of your choice.
