Join GSAS Futures for a luncheon featuring a discussion on compatible career options for graduate students across the liberal arts. The event will feature three panelists who will comment on career opportunities they have pursued alongside of their graduate education. They will discuss how their advanced training in academic disciplines – including modern language and literature – has built a skill base suitable for a range of professional occupations. Panelists will also comment on their experience with a fellowship opportunity available with the Modern Language Association – a proseminar on compatible career options for Ph.D. students organized by Connected Academics.

Panelists include Stacy Hartman, Project Coordinator for Connected Academics, Samantha Sabalis, a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of English and current Connected Academics fellow, and Cathal Pratt, a graduate student in the Department of English and previous Connected Academics fellow. The event will include content useful for students pursuing both master’s and doctoral degrees in a wide variety of disciplines.
