In response to the reality that most doctoral graduates ultimately find employment outside of the academic sector the EGSH and the Erasmus University's Alumni Relations Team will run a series of online PhD Alumni dialogues. These workshops will focus on a career path after obtaining a doctoral degree in the social sciences or the humanities.

Working method

Each workshop will host a panel of alumni from the EGSH. The alumni will explain their personal background and the professional route that brought them to their current employment outside academia. There will be ample time for questions and discussion. The workshops will be moderated by our dean, dr. Esther Rozendaal.

More information about the participating alumni will be offered in due time.
