Humanities Careers

The Dietrich School has received an NEH Next Generation Humanities PhD Planning Grant in support of a year-long process to rethink humanities doctoral education to optimize every student’s preparation for diverse high-impact careers. “Humanities Careers: Re-Imagining Doctoral Education in the Humanities” will focus on student and alumni data; curricular change; partnerships across and beyond campus, including alumni relations; and experiential learning. Our project will foster a cultural transformation in how faculty, students, and the University of Pittsburgh envisage the broader importance of humanities PhDs and the societal impacts of humanistic training.
