Preparing Humanities Professionals in PhD Programs at an Hispanic-Serving Institution

Planning at the University of Texas, El Paso (UTEP) around five topics: 1) preparing minority doctoral students in the humanities for entry into a range of non-academic careers; 2) achieving faculty support for reform; 3) stimulating collaboration among programs and students across disciplines; 4) identifying humanities alumni to participate in advising and mentoring programs; and 5) partnering with nonacademic institutions.

This program will develop activities that will prepare humanities doctoral students for alternative career paths. This project will focus on preparation of students for discipline-specific non-academic careers, as well as for a broader range of careers that would draw on the particular skills and talents that humanities students develop. The project will consist of a year-long set of activities to investigate and pilot possible programing that enhances in humanities PhD students critical skills that, combined with the skill sets developed in academic programs, provide students a wider range of career opportunities.
