One of the main advantages of majoring in a classic liberal arts discipline, such as philosophy, art history or sociology, is you graduate with a degree you can apply to almost any type of work.

But what if you're tired of hearing that? What if you chose your liberal arts major because you truly love the subject and want to get a job in that specific field? Are you doomed to a life of working your day job and catching up with your real passion at night and on weekends?

Not at all. While millions of jobs may not directly relate to your liberal arts major, some do. Here are some examples:

It may be a long, difficult and expensive path, but if you're a knowledgeable, skilled teacher and researcher and you're willing to move to where the available jobs are, there's a decent chance you can make this work....
