POPULARITY

Humanities is the 155th most popular degree in America, with 1,845 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #156 Quality Control and Safety Technologies, and narrowly lost to #154 Architectural Technology.

The degree is offered at a total of 248 colleges across the nation, and is the 92nd most widely offered degree. Given that humanities is offered at 23% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that 65% of colleges offering humanities are public making it a quite accessible field.

The far west produces the most humanities graduates, largely led by Azusa Pacific University, while it’s the Big East Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, New Jersey ranks highest, with particular help from Montclair State University and Seton Hall University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more humanities graduates than Barstow Community College, which graduated 171 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study humanities). More students studied humanities as a percentage of total students at The King's College than any other college.
