Diversity Colloquium "What Can You Do With That?: Navigating Career Pathways in "Useless" Majors Through Service-Learning Partnerships"

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 7:00 pm

Presented by: Cara Burnidge and Yasemin Sari, Assistant Professors of Philosophy & World Religions, philosophy students and EMBARC

Philosophy and the Study of Religion are often perceived as "useless" liberal arts majors, leaving students unprepared for careers after college. In response to these stereotypes, the Department of Philosophy & World Religions addresses these concerns through two critical service-learning seminars partnered with Ethnic Minorities of Burma Advocacy and Resource Center in Fall 2018. Yasemin Sari and Cara Burnidge, and their students, discuss their experiences, and demonstrate how these majors offer students opportunities to develop leadership and career-ready skills through course work, intentional service, and reflection.
