Training for Non-Academic Careers in a Research-University Setting

Planning at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) around four topics: 1) strategies to achieve faculty support for the project; 2) consideration of altered formats or requirements for the PhD dissertation; 3) potential for developing new courses and curricula; and 4) initiation of partnerships with non-academic institutions.

We envision a core planning committee organizing a series of eight events designed to instigate discussions in each of our humanities departments. These discussions will focus on issues such as: how doctoral curricula can incorporate internships or other experiences that train students for varied professions; the possibility of new forms of dissertation production; training in metaprofessional skills that can be used in multiple settings; and the construction of networks of alumni and other professionals that can facilitate opportunities for our graduate students.
