Arts or Humanities as a career stream

A popular option among many, Humanities is the extension of human existence and expression.

Arts as Career stream:

Humanities are academic disciplines that study aspects of human society and culture. In the Renaissance, the term contrasted with divinity and referred to what is now called classics, the main area of secular study in universities at the time. Today, the humanities are more frequently contrasted with natural, and sometimes social sciences, as well as professional training.

It is the biggest and most extensive field covering a variety of topics and subjects such as anthropology, archaeology, law, religion, music, arts, linguistics and languages, politics, philosophy among others.

For many decades, there has been a growing public perception that a humanities education inadequately prepares graduates for employment. The common belief is that graduates from such programs face underemployment and incomes too low for a humanities education to be worth the investment.

Humanities graduates find employment in a wide variety of management and professional occupations

Entrance Exams:

Very few of the options available after pursuing humanities in high school require an entrance exam and this means studies need to focus well on scoring good grades during the 12th exam.

Among the careers that do require an entrance exam, Law (CLAT) and hotel management come to mind.
