This quarter’s professionalization workshop will be a panel led by graduates of our program who are working in non-academic careers (meaning not teaching college primarily). It will coincide with Alumni Weekend and a celebration for the 50th anniversary of our department (there is a day-long symposium on April 26th). Five former graduate students from the Religious Studies department will discuss how they decided on pursuing non-academic careers after leaving UCSB and how their study of religion/s has informed their professional and personal lives. If you are considering a non-academic career, this workshop should prove informative and inspiring.
