    Liberal arts majors are a dying breed

    English majors are becoming an increasingly rare commodity.

    The share of new bachelor’s degrees awarded in the humanities dropped below 12% in 2015 for the first time since 1987, according to a recent analysis released by Humanities Indicators, a project of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences which tracks data on the state of humanities fields. The drop comes after 10 years in a row of declines, including a 5% drop from the previous year and a 9.5% decline from a recent high point in humanities degrees in 2012.

    'Arts and Sciences' would include just about anything so why not include some career-enhancing specialties?
