Humanities scholars on the labour market
With a share of 8.2 per cent of all students and a share of 5.6 per cent of all approximately nine million employed graduates, the humanities graduates, without considering the teaching graduates, represent a comparatively small group in study and employment. Their most striking difference to the average of graduates is their high proportion of women, which in turn leads to an above-average proportion of mostly voluntary part-time employment.
