Earn Your Master’s of Liberal Arts or MFA Degree Online

Rather than train you in a specific profession, MFA degrees teach you how to think critically and introduce you to art, culture and history from across the world. If you are devoted to a particular art form or academic discipline, and know that you want to study it for the rest of your life, then you should probably pursue the appropriate liberal arts specialty.

What Can You Do With A Liberal Arts Degree

Not everyone who earns a Master's of liberal arts degree is an artist, however; with some talent and hard work, such a degree can lead you to a career in communications, design, entertainment, teaching, writing or many other fields.

The skills acquired in a liberal arts education are sought after by many employers, including skills in written and oral communication, research, information management, human relations and critical thinking.

The Job Outlook for Liberal Arts Degrees

While some still associate a liberal arts degree with the arts -- dancers and choreographers, writers and painters -- there are many occupations liberal studies will prepare you to handle, many of which are growing rapidly.

For example, public relation specialists, who made a median salary of $55,680 in 2014, are expected to experience 12% job growth by 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Art historians and museum curators are expected to see 11% growth and made a median salary of $51,280 in 2014, according to the BLS. And advertising and promotions managers, who made a median of $96,720 in 2014, are expected to see 12% growth, according to the BLS.
