Navigation Links Announces Expansion of Liberal Arts & Humanities to its Accredited Online Degree Programs

In this day and age of specialization and compartmentalization, liberal arts and humanities degrees are sometimes overlooked and undervalued as legitimately worthwhile courses of study. For individuals who desire a well-rounded, more classical education, a liberal arts or humanities degree can be the perfect solution. Course subjects can range from communications and journalism to general arts and the humanities. A liberal arts education opens the mind to many different subjects and possibilities. It exposes students to a wide variety of ideas, both popular and unpopular, and encourages individuals to think independently and critically when formulating opinions. When choosing an online degree program, prospective students are making an enormous commitment of both time and money. Therefore, it is extremely important to choose a legitimate, fully accredited online degree program such as those now offered on

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2010 --, the nation’s leading independent resource for education online, announced today that it is increasing its already expansive roster of accredited online degree programs with the addition of online liberal arts and humanities degrees, now available through its website. Liberal Arts cover a wide range of subjects- journalism, communications, foreign languages, English, religious studies, and more. Classes focus on ideas and how to apply them. Many courses center on reading books, having relevant discussions, and composing papers. A liberal arts education teaches students to think critically and develop their intellectual muscles to analyze and organize ideas. It also encourages individuals to broaden their understanding of the world and the issues facing both society and themselves.

A popular choice for many prospective students is an online communications degree. It prepares future graduates to work in many different fields within the communications industry. Public relations specialists are involved with the creation of an image for an organization or individual. This can include conducting research, compiling data, writing reports and meeting with target groups. Public information officers are responsible for gathering information and writing speeches, press releases, and newsletters to inform the general public about specific events or topics. A communications director helps promote the goals and policies of a group, usually a non-profit organization. Individuals who want to work in this field need excellent writing and verbal communication skills. They must also be able to manage others. Graduates normally find positions in government, radio, newspapers, education, and private companies.

The way we perceive journalism has been greatly transformed over the past few years, largely in part to the incredible rise of the Internet. Information can be accessed almost instantly and at the touch of a finger. Earning an online journalism degree gives students the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to succeed in this competitive industry. Job opportunities in journalism vary greatly. Newspaper reporters cover stories for community, metropolitan, or national publications. These stories are often fast-breaking, so along with flexibility and quick–thinking skills, the ability to write with both speed and accuracy are essential. Investigative reporters are typically hired by newspapers, magazines, or television networks. Their assignments involve researching and flushing out stories about crime, politics, or various scandals. They must be able to discern fact from fiction and be skilled researchers. Foreign correspondents work for media companies in overseas countries and while this may seem like an exotic and high-profile career path, it can also be dangerous and stressful. This job usually involves extensive travel for long periods of time, often in areas of unrest and upheaval.    

The humanities encompass many different areas of study- history, ethics, languages, archaeology, literature, and philosophy, for example. Individuals who pursue an online humanities degree study the stories, ideas, and words that enable people to make sense of their lives and their world. By illuminating how others have lived and their ideas about life, prospective graduates are better able to understand the difference between what is important and unimportant in individual lives and how to use that knowledge to enrich humanity as a whole. History, anthropology and archaeology study human social, political and cultural development. Literature and languages explore how we communicate with one another and how our ideas are expressed and interpreted. Philosophy, ethics, and religious studies help us consider ideas about the meaning of life and the reasons behind our thoughts and actions. Individuals choosing this degree program will become proficient in writing and speaking clearly and effectively. They will be skilled at analyzing ideas. These attributes are highly regarded and sought by employers in every sector of the business world.

For those students wanting a broader field of study, earning an online general arts degree provides a solid educational foundation. This degree is ideal for persons interested in furthering their education and employment possibilities but also want to broaden their expertise beyond one specific area. Coursework can include science, mathematics, fine arts, and many humanities courses. Employers want individuals who possess excellent communication skills, are able to think critically, have problem-solving abilities, and can work with diverse groups of people. A general arts degree prepares students for a number of career paths which can include business, social work or with the necessary certifications, education.
