Where Can Humanities Take You?

Where Can Humanities Take You?

In the picture above you can see the fantastic display created by Miss Rimmer and Mrs Naylor along our Humanities corridor. It is a common misconception that studying Geography and History means you can only become a teacher. This shows you that there are many routes, including teaching, you can take if you study a Humanities subject.

For example – Did you know that Geography counts as another science? So you can become a doctor or work in another medical profession e.g. nursing,  with Geography GCSE and A Level! Past pupil Megan studied A Level History as well as her sciences and is currently studying Medicine! Want to become a Lawyer/Solicitor? Studying a Humanities subject is strongly encouraged in order to get on to the degree course. We have had many past pupils who are either practising lawyers/solicitors or who are currently studying to become part of this profession.

Humanities subjects open many doors to a wide range of professions that  you probably didn’t think of. The skills and knowledge you learn in Geography, History, Politics and Tourism are considered highly beneficial in any future employment you may find. Come and have a look at our careers board on the 3rd floor but also look at the front of the classroom in each of our Humanities rooms and see what skills, degree options and employment opportunities you can gain from studying Humanities, courtesy of Mrs Bashford. You may also have seen this information on our big screens around school in the last week too.

Past pupil Jessica has recently graduated from the University of Liverpool with a first class degree in Geography and we currently have past pupil Fay returned to us to do some work experience in preparation for her PGCE in 2022. Fay has just completed her second year at Lancaster University studying History. We have 5 pupils in our current Year 13 cohort going on to study a Humanities subject in university next year, so Humanities can take you anywhere!
