Mission Statement

The Humanities Career Panel Series (HCPS) aims to help UCLA students translate their knowledge into successful careers. Designed specifically for students majoring and minoring in the Humanities, but open to all students, HCPS provides students with the necessary tools to be competitive in today’s job market and gives them the opportunity to connect with professionals in their target career field (business, education, technology, law, government, non-profit, etcetera).

Each academic year the series will host a number of workshops, panels, discussions, and networking events during which time students can meet employers in a casual setting. Students will learn about the various types of careers they can find in different industries and how they can market the skills they’ve learned in their UCLA Humanities courses (analytical, writing, problem solving, and foreign language) to employers. Collectively, these events will help prepare students to enter the job market as they near the conclusion of their studies at UCLA.
