CAHSS Spotlight Virtual Event
April 14 at 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
A College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS) Spotlight Event will present “Amidst Great Change: Why a Career in the Arts, Humanities, or Social Sciences is Rewarding and Valuable.”
The pandemic has changed almost every aspect of life, especially in the economic and career landscapes. People are thinking about their professional choices with a new lens to ensure they select careers that offer what they may believe to be a stable and secure future. Some may wonder if a degree in the social sciences, arts, and/or humanities will give them this security.
Join us for the CAHSS Spring Spotlight Virtual Event on Wednesday, April 14 from 4:30–5:30 p.m. for this timely conversation featuring CAHSS-affiliated faculty who will share their thoughts on why having or pursuing a degree in these areas is still so important. The panel will feature:

- Vin Grabill, Associate Professor Emeritus of Cinematic Arts, Visual Arts
- Nancy Miller, Professor and Director of the School of Public Policy, Affiliate Professor of the Doctoral Program in Gerontology
