True. Of course, art history can lead to a good job if you develop strong reading, writing, and analytical skills, especially as an art history major who’s serious will be proficient at at least one foreign language. But, as always, that’s assuming it’s a rigorous art history major.
Actually, not true. The key to getting a good job in not having a degree from a rigorous art history program. It is convincing employers that your rigorous art history degree actually indicates you have the skills they want.
That is an increasingly uphill task, and for good reason. Have you taken a close look at the average art history major these days? Maybe not quite as bad as the general run of “studies” students, but not very encouraging, either.
