To showcase the variety of lives and livelihoods of humanities and humanistic social science PhDs, the Townsend Center and the Graduate Division invite 10 Berkeley PhD graduates working in a range of careers to lead small group discussions with current and recent PhD students. These discussions give doctoral students the opportunity both to learn about others’ career experiences and to gain insight into their own paths.

Participants engage in a series of small group discussions with Berkeley PhDs working in areas including the public sector, writing and editing, tech, consulting, arts and culture entrepreneurship, non-profit management, academic administration, university fundraising, and teaching at the community college level. John Paulas, president of PhD Matters Ltd. and former director of fellowships at the Townsend Center, facilitates.


UC Berkeley PhD students at any stage and recent UC Berkeley PhD graduates, whose field of study is in the arts, humanities, or humanistic social sciences. Admission to the workshop is by application only. All applicants meeting the eligibility requirement above will be registered for the event, up to 40 students, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Register Now! Deadline to apply is Friday, April 12, 2019 The event venue accommodates only 40 participants. The application form is available at the Townsend Center for the Humanities website.
