Next Generation Careers for KU Humanities PhDs

Planning at the University of Kansas (KU) around five topics: 1) potential reforms to the doctoral curriculum; 2) the place of engaged or applied scholarship in PhD training; 3) methods for enlisting the assistance of alumni in training for alternative careers; 4) possible partnerships with nonacademic employers, and 5) the need to modify recruitment and admissions practices.

The University of Kansas humanities planning group will make recommendations that will transform humanities doctoral education. The committee's work will create departmental cultures in the humanities that recognize and value the range of careers open to humanities doctoral recipients. Secondly, it will create greater parity between the training that doctoral students receive and the range of career opportunities they seek. The end result will be a set of recommendations that will deepen the impact PhD graduates can have in their careers.
