So You Want to Get a Ph.D. in the Humanities?

October 27, 2010

The viral video of the week, at least in the humanities, is below, mocking those who want to pursue a humanities doctorate in the face of the terrible job market. If you haven't seen the video, in which a faculty member tries to discourage a would-be graduate student, you can view it below. (At The Valve, Marc Bousquet writes that the video is really about traditional literary scholarship, not all work in English or the humanities.)

Aspiring humanities professors are not the only ones being mocked in this series, however. Potential law students don't make out much better.
