Hi Desmond,

Liberal studies is a very versatile major and an associate degree in liberal studies can be a nice resume booster. For instance, I have an associate degree in liberal arts/general studies and I have gone to work in sales, customer service, and tier 1 technical support. If you choose to study liberal arts, you can choose courses that interest you, which may help you get a better understanding of what career you would like to enter. If you would like to specialize in a specific field that requires a certification/license like Nursing, Teaching, or Computer Science, I would recommend deciding on a more specialized major vs liberal studies. A degree does not guarantee a job or entry into a career, but it can be beneficial to have. Keep in mind that some jobs/career fields require a bachelor's or master's as a minimum requirement.

Below is a list of potential careers for a liberal studies major:

Research careers you are interested in.
Talk to admissions representatives at colleges you are interested in.

Rebecca’s Answer

By getting an Associates degree in Liberal Arts, you are showing future employers that you are well-rounded. Liberal Arts establishes a great foundation to build from. Ask yourself if there were any particular areas that you studied while getting the Associates degree that were more interesting to you or that you were especially good at and look into positions in those areas. With an Associates degree you may find that you are limited based on your level of education. If you are able to do some internships or get work in a particular area of interest, real world job experience sometimes helps to trump any level of education you have. Also, if you are interested in continuing your education, seek out companies that provide education assistance and would be willing to pay part or all of your schooling in order to obtain a Bachelors or even Masters degree while you are getting paid to work for them.
