Student Attitudes: Expectations and Realities.
Gatlin, Judith T.
As seen from interviews with graduating seniors in a small liberal arts college for women, humanities majors are generally unrealistic about their training and abilities, often unsure about their career goals, antagonistic toward government and business, and frequently unresponsive to suggestions about nontraditional career options. In addition, because of their optimism, their humility, and their lack of direction, humanities majors have traditionally put off the job search until late in their senior year and often interview for very few postions. Career counseling, improved information distribution, and supportive faculty advising should help these students to formulate realistic objectives. (JM)
