Survey on Humanities Graduate Education and Alternative Academic Careers, 2012
Investigates perceptions about career preparation provided by humanities graduate programs. The study was carried out by the Scholarly Communication Institute. The SCI administered a broad survey of humanities-trained respondents who self-identify as working in alternative academic careers (non-academic, non-tenured or tenured track), as well as their employers. Part 1 (Main Survey (Public-Use)) of the collection contains data of humanities-trained respondents working in alternative academic careers. Respondents were asked about their degree(s), career, methods course, value of degree(s), preparedness for position, training at work, job resources, and job skills. Part 2 (Employer Survey (Public-Use)) contains data from a survey of the respondents' employers. Employers were asked about their humanities employees' performance, competencies, education, preparedness, and any training the employees needed. Part 3 (Main Survey (Restricted-Use)) is a restricted data file that contains an additional 58 variables not included in Part One. Variables in Part Three include variables such as race, gender, geography, birthday, marital status, and number of dependents.
