Graduate College Career Development Events

The "What Can I Do with a PhD in the Humanities?" Group provides a guided discovery process and collaborative environment for graduate students in the humanities who are interested in exploring broader career options. Participants will work with a career advisor with a humanities PhD to identify and explore options that fit their skills, interests and values. They will have a chance to interact and ask questions of humanists in a wide range of careers and will also learn about resources for job searching and how to begin the process of developing effective application materials. (Please note that this is not a job search group. It will be focused on exploring new options not engaging in an active, immediate search.) Students in any field whose work involves humanistic inquiry are welcome to participate. Participants must commit to meeting once a week for 5 weeks, with 1-1.5 hours/week of additional work in between sessions. The Spring 2017 "What Can I Do with a PhD in the Humanities?" Group will meet Thursdays from 3:00-5:00pm, from March 9 through April 13 (with a week off for Spring Break). All sessions will be held in 304 Coble Hall.
