UCI Introduces a New Program to Make It Easier for Humanities PhDs to Get Hired

Earning a PhD in philosophy from a prestigious university is a noble endeavor, but when it can take upwards of a decade and over $100,000 in tuition to earn that degree, and studies show that job prospects drop the longer students take to complete their degrees, does it still make sense in today's economy? At The University of California, Irvine, school administrators just introduced a unique new PhD program in certain humanities fields that aims to increase financial support, lessen the student debt load and increase hiring prospects for students.
