Graduate Student Opportunities
The Connected PhD is an initiative supported by the Mellon Foundation that seeks to enrich professional development opportunities for doctoral students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences at Brandeis. This four-year program will:
- Develop graduate courses and course modules that integrate scholarly creativity with professional development opportunities that will prepare students for diverse careers.
- Give a significant number of faculty the training and experience to sustain student-centered practices in doctoral education at Brandeis University.
- Create opportunities for students to learn a broad range of competencies necessary to succeed in academic and non-academic careers.
- Develop new ways of balancing student academic and work responsibilities, including during the summer months.
