  • ‘What are you going to do with that degree?’ - 05/26/2014

    For students majoring in the liberal arts, with all of that degree’s vagary, the question is a common one: “What are you going to do with that degree?”

    Statistically speaking, it turns out the best answer would be to teach.

    That’s just one tiny finding in a sea of interesting data compiled by Northeastern University assistant professor Ben Schmidt. Schmidt took census data that showed which careers people who study a given major went into. He then designed an awesome interactive, making that information sortable by major or field.
