Satisfaction of Humanities Bachelor’s Degree Holders with Nonmonetary Aspects of Their Job, by Field of Bachelor’s Degree, 2019
Humanities graduates were also similar to college graduates generally in their attitudes about some of the less tangible aspects of their job. The shares of graduates with bachelor’s degrees in the humanities who expressed satisfaction about the degree of independence and level of responsibility in their job were very similar to the shares for fields to which the humanities is often compared. Two fields, however, stand out for the satisfaction their graduates derive from their work.27 Education and health/medical sciences graduates were appreciably more likely to express satisfaction (in comparison both to the humanities and to college graduates generally) with the intellectual challenges and contributions to society afforded by their jobs.
