Online Resources

There is lots of good data to explore online about the impact of the arts and humanities.

From The State of the Humanities 2018: Graduates in the Workforce and Beyond:

  • Almost 87% of workers with a bachelor’s degree in the humanities reported they were satisfied with their jobs in 2015, comparable to graduates from almost every other field.
  • Over three-quarters of humanities graduates saw themselves at or approaching “the best possible life,” which was similar to the shares among engineering and natural science graduates.

The Study the Humanities Toolkit from the National Humanities Alliance is a collection of resources for higher education faculty and administrators to use in making the case for the value of studying the humanities as an undergraduate.

Americans for the Arts is a hub for data and information about various federal arts agencies and arts education in America.

Data on the arts and humanities can also be found on the National Endowment for the Arts Facts & Figures page.
