On average, the college graduate will have 6-10 jobs during their careers. The key to success is transferable skills. In a recent survey of employers, 93% said that “a demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems is more important than a candidate’s undergraduate major.” Religion, Philosophy, History and Political Science consistently outperform their more obvious counterparts because our students possess these skills.
