The belief that Humanities/Arts stream is confined to academically weak students is facing a gradual shift. Now, people are considering this field with a different perspective, which is both refreshing and reassuring.

 A survey conducted, in 2015, on 36000 students (across nine cities) claims that 74% of these students aspired to pursue a career in Humanities.

Watch this video to know how choosing Arts does not obstruct your career growth.
