Primary Instructor:

Doctoral students in the humanities are increasingly pursuing a variety of career pathways both within and beyond the academy. This new course, which will incorporate resources and expertise from Rackham's professional development programs and the MLA's Connected Academics program, will help students both to broaden their awareness of the full range of attractive career opportunities open to humanities PhDs and to identify and articulate specific aptitudes and skill-sets that their doctoral training enables them to bring to a variety of organizational contexts in the non-profit and for-profit sectors. Intended primarily for advanced (third year or above) doctoral students in any humanities field, it will consist of a structured series of workshops, discussions, site visits, group projects, and written assignments incorporating both scholarly and practical, hands-on approaches to rethinking the role of professionally trained humanists in today's workplace.

Intended Audience:

Restricted to PhD Students 3rd Year and Up
