Compelling Articles on the Value of Studying the Humanities
The following articles—taken from a wide variety of publications—make the case for studying the humanities and employ a variety of different arguments to do so. Some focus on the skills gained, others on preparedness for particular careers, and still others on the non-market oriented benefits.
This is just a small selection from the genre, but these articles have been selected either because 1) their arguments are particularly compelling or novel or 2) because they performed particularly well on social media.
