10 Jobs in 10 Weeks: Leveraging Your Liberal Arts Career

Designed specifically for humanities students, this course connects the dots between a liberal arts education and the working world. It’s designed to give students a taste of 10 career fields in just 10 weeks.

Each week, guest alumni or industry experts walk through their field—giving a glimpse into their jobs, providing a peek into what a typical day might look like, and delivering a hands-on project pulled from an actual workday. Representing industries like marketing & advertising, government, media & journalism, social impact, business, and more, these guest speakers will help you translate your coursework into professional options.
