Pathways for Humanities PhDs

Pathways for Humanities PhDs explores the many different career possibilities open to doctoral students in the humanities and arts. Workshops connect students with PhDs employed in areas such as education, government, business, and the nonprofit sector and examine how their humanistic training informs their current work. The series also considers how humanists can more effectively communicate the value of humanistic expertise to employers and the public.

Many of the issues raised in this series are also the subject of ongoing discussions in higher education about the challenges facing humanities programs. To learn more, see our recommended readings page.

Stanford offers a vast number of professional development resources to support graduate students in their career exploration. To help you find what you need, we have assembled a list of the programs most relevant to humanities PhDs.
