    It totally depends upon the interest of the students. Many scholars from Humanities are successful and many from other two fields too. It depends upon students that in which field they have interest or in which field they want to make their career. Scope in Humanities is also good. There are many subjects such as History, Geography, Sociology, Political Science, Hindi, English and some more which helps students to make their better career. If a student has interest in civil service jobs, then by choosing these subjects, they can easily crack this exam.Yes, there is a difference in their scope. If any student wants government job, then candida... view more

    It is indeed good career option for those who are passionate for it. There should not be comparisons between both streams (humanities and science). No, there is no competition/comparison between both because both have immense job opportunities for them, those who love them. Primary thing is that, you must go according to your choice/passion/dream/future plan/personality type. All the best friend.

    Yes, it is a good choice and should not be compared with any other stream since it’s different in all aspects. Further, you can give NET entrance exam.

    There's really no such thing as a "Prior Interests, etc.”. Globe is progressing rapidly, opportunities are plentiful and demand for competent professionals exists in every field. If you are good at what you do, interest would automatically generate, Spend some more time with yourself go and use this wonderful technology "internet" try and fix up your long term goals in terms of career you would like to take up, then decide whether commerce or arts suits your goals better.

    Career options go beyond Engineering, Medicine and Finance. Most engineers switch streams early on in their careers and move to finance or marketing. Why they choose to study engineering in the first place is always a mystery to me! In the last decade, there has been an explosion of non-conventional career options, many of which require a good grounding in Humanities rather than scientific knowledge. Mass Communication, Journalism, Design and Art, Rural Marketing, Law, Public Policy, Human Rights, Social Work are some of the career options that are available to Humanities students. These career options are not only interesting but also popula... view more

    Hello there,Never get frightened of anything when it comes to the career. Science and commerce are not the only streams. It's stupidity that a majority of students are going for science and commerce just because they are being told about them. If humanities is the subject which you like, then go for humanities. There are tons of opportunities in humanities also. Among them, the most famous is being a lecturer after clearing UGC NET. If you like humanities then you will love to teach your favourite subject to others also.Other than being a lecturer, you can make a career in the following fields:1. Advertising Sales Agent2. Technical Writer3. C... view more

    Good or Bad are relative term. It is not necessary that whether something is good for you is also good for others. Humanities is absolutely a good career option if you are interested about it. Same for other stream as well. What all matter is your willingness and interest. Now, come on to your query; Humanities is indeed a good career option. Here, you can not just be the professor or faculties in University/college but you also can be the part of any organization while being economists, relationship manager, journalist, research analyst and etc. Thus, there is not any deficiency or job chances in India for Humanities students. Not just in In... view more
