Careers Beyond Academia: A Conversation with Recent Musicology Ph.D.s

Are you a Humanities grad student wondering about careers outside the academy? Then consider attending an event hosted by the UCSB Department of Music on pursuing alternatives to academic careers after getting a Ph.D. The event is this Friday, February 26, from 3:30-5 p.m., and will feature three recent musicology Ph.D.s in a conversation about how they transformed their graduate school experiences into opportunities outside the academic job market. While the primary audience will be students in musicology and ethnomusicology, the issues discussed will certainly resonate with grad students from other humanities disciplines. See the flyer below for more information.
