What can one do with a Ph.D. in Humanities or Social Sciences outside of academia? Is it possible to move in and out of academia?
Our own former PhD student Joseph Bernardo will share his journey, advice and reflection on graduate school and his nonacademic career path. Also, Jon Olivera and John Charlton will bring their experience and expertise in career counseling to help students explore the possibilities and services offered at UW.
Joseph earned a Ph.D. in history from the University of Washington in 2014. He has worked in government, philanthropy, and the non-profit sector in Los Angeles. His professional interests include Ethnic Studies, Philippine and Filipino American history, urban planning, and diversity policy. He currently works as a Research Associate for the Office of Intercultural Affairs at Loyola Marymount University, researching and developing projects and policies aimed at increasing institutional diversity.
Light lunch and coffee will be served.
