Franklin College highlights undergrad studies in humanities, arts, social sciences
Asking “What can’t you do with an A.B. degree?” the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences is encouraging students to consider undergraduate degrees in the humanities, arts, and social sciences as the foundation of a versatile skill set with enormous value to employers as well as to the students themselves.
From The Franklin Chronicles:
Advanced reasoning and communication skills that grow with a career – and with career goals and ambitions – help students cultivate their creativity, collaborate, engage in abstract ideas, master complex communication, and learn to thrive in diverse environments. These skills are relevant to every field, emphasizing the importance of the humanities, the social sciences, the arts – the many disciplines in which UGA and the Franklin College offer A.B. degrees. In many ways, these disciplines are the backbone of the university – because they are the foundation of our society. They support specialties and birth entrepreneurs, providing paths to leadership and service.
The Franklin College will highlight a series of graduates who have built rewarding careers upon their A.B. degrees, such as Franklin alumna and Working Solutions president and chief executive Kim Houlne.
Additionally, the UGA Career Center will host a Nov. 8 panel event titled “What Can’t You Do with an A.B. Degree?” featuring university alumni who will discuss how their Franklin College A.B. degrees helped them along their chosen career paths.
