Arts is one of the streams, along with Science and Commerce, which students opt for after completing their matriculation. However, the resentment towards choosing this stream is high. There is a notion among people that Arts is least favorable of all the three.
What’s the myth with Arts?
While choosing Arts during 10+2, students worry about their future seeing their peers taking up Science and Commerce. Moreover, relatives and peers keep on taunting them for choosing a fruitless career option. Students also believe they will have fewer opportunities after finishing their graduation in Arts. Well, that may have been true a decade back, but it is not true at all in this day and age. This false notion needs to be discarded.
Arts students have fantastic career opportunities (possibly more) than Science and Commerce stream students. However, they should choose the field wisely and should know what they want to do later in life.
