A competitive edge for the job market

The Medical Humanities major gives students a competitive edge in the health care industries, the fastest growing sector in the economy today. Med Hum majors acquire a knowledge base in diverse health care fields as well as the transferable job skills employers seek most: writing skills, oral communication, critical thinking and ethical decision-making.

Graduates of Medical Humanities programs find employment opportunities in hospitals, universities, pharmaceutical companies, nursing facilities, physicians’ offices, retirement communities, outpatient centers and with insurance carriers. A degree in Medical Humanities also helps prepare students for medical school and law school, as well as a range of interdisciplinary PhD programs in the humanities and social sciences.
