About the Event
This event will provide answers to the perennial question asked by Humanities majors: What can I do with a degree in Humanities? A panel that includes Humanities alumni who were advantaged by their Humanities degrees will share their expertise in regard to finding stimulating jobs, advancing in those jobs, and transferring their skills into many other fields.
This learning experience can profoundly affect the future of the Humanities Major students. It opens their horizon to infinite possibilities of life; as the interdisciplinary structure of Humanities unlocks an unexpected variety of professional doors and diverse careers. Everyone is welcome!
After the panel, refreshments will be served and there will be a chance to talk to individuals on the panel about your particular interests and about practical matters such as locating a job and the job application process. In addition, there will be brochures and hand-outs that focus specifically on jobs for people with degrees in Humanities.
