The New PhD: A Renaissance of Public Education

Planning activities at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York encompass three planning themes: 1) ways to integrate multiple career outcomes from the beginning of students’ experience in graduate school; 2) collecting and publicly disseminating data about retention rates and students’ post-doctoral career paths; 3) initiation of partnerships with non-academic institutions.  

PhD students join Graduate Center humanities PhD programs because they want to explore big ideas at the core of humanities, understanding issues of social justice, historical contexts, and ethics. The goal of this project is to provide them with the tools to use their ideas and training to make a positive impact in our global society. This proposal convenes two groups, both a smaller, core group and a larger planning group, of faculty members, alumni, current students and administrators to discuss three pivotal issues at the Graduate Center: our humanities doctoral curriculum, how we track our humanities PhD career outcomes, and how we partner and network with alumni and employers to provide our students with a firm foundation for pursuing a range of careers. In doing so, we will lay the groundwork for transforming the training given to humanities PhDs.
