We are excited to announce the first thursdays workshop series - focusing on professional & public lives after a Humanities degree. This six session series is co-sponsored by the Departments of English, Classics, History and Religious Studies and by the Career Development Center (CDC). It is an opportunity for looking at life after graduation with a Humanities degree and you will be offered information, practice, inspiration and a Q&A on different topics each session. Attend them all or choose your favorites. All sessions will be held 4:45-6:15pm in the Harmon Room and a light dinner will be provided. We hope majors and minors from the Humanities Departments including Religious Studies, Classics, History, and English will participate. The sessions will involve faculty from the Humanities and the CDC.






The first session is Thursday, October 5 on Applying to Graduate School led by Professors Peter Bognanni, Amy Elkins, and Penelope Geng. In this session you will explore the following questions: Should you apply to graduate school? Should you take time off to do other things first? Where and how should you apply? What are the differences between Creative Writing programs and academic programs in Humanities disciplines?This session will help you: 

·       Think about whether graduate school is the right choice for you

·       Assemble criteria to help choose programs that are a good fit for your interests and goals
