Abstract

A report released by Shearer West and colleagues confounds popular notions regarding the usefulness of a humanities degree. The report established a significant increase in the number of Oxford University humanities graduates who went into growth sectors of the economy —namely management, media, financial services and law—during the period of study. As this study was always intended to be a pilot, she hopes that others will produce comparable studies that examine different universities, other subject areas and variant time frames.
