There are many practical applications for a degree in the humanities. For example, critical thinking is a foundational skill that translates across any type of business, combat situation, classroom experience, and marketing campaign. For those seeking an English degree, you can expect to apply your writing skills to different areas of your military suit.

For a firsthand account of the widespread value of a degree in English check out, “The Value of an English Degree in Military Service“.
