Satisfaction of Humanities Bachelor’s Degree Holders with Aspects of Their Principal Job, by Highest Degree, 2015Back to table of contents
Those who had earned both their bachelor’s and higher degree in the humanities had the highest percentage of satisfaction with their degree of independence but the lowest percentage of satisfaction with their salary and benefits. Graduates with an advanced degree in another field were the most likely to be satisfied with their salary and job security. When it came to satisfaction with various aspects of their job, earning an advanced degree appeared to make only a modest difference for holders of humanities bachelor’s degrees, and the disparities were less pronounced than the differences in earnings.1
