Any Liberal Arts Majors?


This is a companion thread to the Engineers thread that popped up. Of course, we all know that engineering is an extremely difficult and financially rewarding career option.

After 2.5 years of studying a bunch of uninteresting, dry, subjects in engineering, I've decided to pursue a liberal arts degree. What am I going to do with my degree? I have no clue. Maybe you guys can help me out.


I'm an English major, and I'm just about done.

My plan is to be a writer...we'll see how well that works out.


I'm going to a liberal arts college, mainly to pursue interests outside of music (I'm going to be a musician out of college) so I can have a degree to back up on in case music fails, or I get bored of it.

That said, I think I will major in either math, or something like biology/chemistry to prep me for pre-med. So either way, I'm most likely going to end up in grad school as an engineer or a doctor if music doesn't end up working for me.
