Graduate Placement

Karl SchaferPlacement Director: Professor Karl Schafer

The UCI Philosophy Department is committed to actively supporting its graduate students in preparing for both the academic and non-academic job markets. At UCI the process of preparing for the job market begins well before students consider going on the market. In particular, through our Professional Development Seminar, students develop many of the skills required for success in the job market throughout their time in graduate school. Thus, by the time they reach the placement process proper, they are well placed to focus on tailoring their materials to meet the requirements of particular positions. In developing these materials, the Placement Director works closely with each student, while also drawing on resources outside the Philosophy Department, such as the Office of Engaged Instruction. If you have any questions about the details of this process, please contact the Placement Director.

I am now in my third year at a tenure track job at William & Mary. I would advise Humanities PhD students to publish during grad school, go to as many conferences as you can, make as many connections as you can, and when on the market apply as widely as possible.

I am fortunate enough to get a tenure track job right after I got my degree, but most people are not so lucky. I'd encourage current Humanities graduate students to look for alternative career while they're in school.
