GSAS partnered with The Rabb School's Graduate Professional Studies (GPS) division at Brandeis to offer a range of professionally-oriented degrees to doctoral students. Eight doctoral students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences took courses during the fall semester of 2021, taking one of three online courses: Cognitive and Social Psychology of User-Centered Design, Principles of Learning Experience Design, and Writing for Digital Environments. Those who pursued these courses found that this type of learning filled gaps in their existing academic training and helped identify transferable skills that they had already developed.
