UCI Next Generation PhDs in the Humanities

Planning by the University of California. Irvine (UCI) around four topics: 1) how to engage faculty and graduate students in rethinking PhD training and employment horizons; 2) ways to integrate multiple career path outcomes into graduate curriculum and training; 3) methods for creating community partnerships and mentoring opportunities; and 4) systems for documenting and disseminating information about post-doctoral career paths.

The University of California, Irvine’s School of Humanities has the structures to enable us to take on a leadership role in developing new models of humanities graduate education. Building on current and historic strengths in the area of PhD reform, we will use an NEH Planning Grant to explore ways to restructure graduate professionalization seminars for larger departments and to design School-wide graduate professionalization seminars for small programs that can leverage a critical mass of students so that these courses provide preparation for multiple career paths.
