Any of you humanities majors worried about job prospects after graduation?

    I just feel that most humanities and arts degrees will have the toughest time looking for jobs. If you major in them, it might land you either a teaching position or something you might not even be doing. Also, STEM degrees are on the rise, and given that technology is going to be on the rise, the ones who are majoring in these fields may have a better chance of getting ahead. Then again, computer science is a very difficult and demanding field and requires a lot of perseverance so unless you are willing to dedicate many hours of fixing minor errors which take up a lot of time and would require you to start over from scratch then I do not know how you can put in the hours. Computer science requires little or no math in the workforce so why do they require you to take calculus and discrete math and the like? As for engineering, you do not even use a whole lot of what you learn so what's the point? The math is minimal.
