The National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded GSAS and Fordham University a Next Generation Humanities PhD grant for the project entitled, The “Living Humanities" Ph.D. for the 21st Century. This grant will enable GSAS to restructure doctoral programs in the humanities area to better prepare students for 21st century career prospects within and outside of academia.
The project will focus on six planning themes that have emerged as being the most relevant to both students and faculty, the University and its mission, and our community both in the Bronx and the greater New York City area. They include:
Ensure Access and Inclusion
Revitalize Learning Outcomes
Inhabit the New Learning Ecosystem
Mentor the Whole Person: Career-wise Counsel, Promising Partnerships
Incorporate Service and Community Engagement
Cultivate and Curate a "Living Humanities" Ph.D. model
