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.
