This event is sponsored by the College of Sciences and Humanities and the Humanities LLC, and will take place in the Studebaker East Multipurpose Room.
What can you do with a major in the humanities? The popular "Stars to Steer By" career series makes those options after college visible.
But what can you do while you're still in school? The "Star Party" will show you all the opportunities available in the departments of English, Philosophy & Religious Studies, History, and Modern Languages & Classics.
This event is for everyone--those who are undecided, switching majors, or just getting started in their humanities major--because we want to help you find your "true north," your purpose and passion.
Come if you want to learn more about editing and publishing, book arts, study abroad, academic and literary journals, public history, spoken-word poetry, tutoring jobs, strategic communications, community activism, teaching, language immersion, and service learning.
Our keynote speaker is Lydia Storie, who earned a BA in English/Literature and History in 2006.
