Liberal arts grads love what they do, and use their education every day to do it. They work in all kinds of fields, from tech to teaching, from health care to foreign affairs, working for big businesses and starting their own. Employers say they want grads with a liberal arts education, and students are more likely to get the experience they need—including through internships—at private colleges than at public institutions.

A persistent myth about liberal arts education—that liberal arts grads don’t find good jobs—simply isn’t true.
