Program Overview

The Humanities@Work program connects Case Western Reserve University humanities students with corporate, government, nonprofit, and other partners through community discussions, networking events, and paid career opportunities (internship, practicum, etc.) for junior- and senior-level undergraduate students. Humanities@Work is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities and in collaboration with the CWRU Career Center, the Office of Corporate Relations, and the Office of Government and Community Relations.

Humanities@Work Events

Each semester, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities hosts Humanities@Work panel discussions designed for undergraduate humanities students.  These panels are focused on a specific career area, and the panels are made up of people who are leaders in those areas and who earned a undergraduate humanities degree.  At each event, panelists discuss how studying the humanities influenced their careers and answer questions from the audience. 

As part of the Humanities@Work program, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities also hosts workshops and panels that deal with the practical aspects of preparing for a career.
