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.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
