Certificate in Public Schoarship
The Simpson Center for the Humanities at the University of Washington announces a new graduate Certificate in Public Scholarship. This project and portfolio-based certificate is designed to bring together cross-disciplinary cohorts of graduate students and faculty interested in:
- public scholarship in the cultural disciplines and other fields that work with culture as a form of public practice;
- revitalized emphases on campus-community partnerships across all sectors of higher education;
- non-traditional forms of scholarly dissemination (digital publication, multimedia formats, exhibitions, learning environments, and performance, among others);
- emerging trends and methodologies of community-engaged research, teaching, and service;
- professional development for university careers and other sectors inside or outside higher education.
In spring 2010, the Certificate in Public Scholarship will admit its first cohort.
Graduate students of good standing in any program at the University of Washington are eligible to apply.
Upon admission, students become Simpson Center Public Scholarship Fellows, are assigned a portfolio advisor, and pursue a self-directed 15-credit course of study that includes a capstone project.
Applications due April 19, 2010. Coursework begins autumn 2010.
