Linking Humanities to Careers


Linking Humanities to Careers was a highly successful event in which URI Alumn who majored in the Humanities came to network with current Humanities students and give them advice on everything from why they majored in the Humanties to how they turned that major into a career. For clips of the event, please see our media gallery!

Networking Panel: “Linking Humanities to Career”

Professionals who studied the Humanities will share information about their career choices, how they prepared for life after college, and how their major in the Humanities has helped them achieve their career goals. They will also offer tips on choosing a career, gaining practical experience, and the rewards and challenges of a career in the Humanities. This is a great interactive opportunity for students to ask any and all questions about career options – and to grab some free food at the same time! Immediately following the panel discussion, plan to stay for refreshments and networking with our alumni.
