Future of the PhD in Humanities

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

The value of a bachelor's degree has diminished in a competitive job market, and the PhD has subsequently been dragged down with it. The demand for tenure-track professors outweighs the supply, leading some to question the value of a PhD, especially those pursuing a doctorate in humanities. Paul Keen, an English professor at Carleton University, joins The Agenda in the Summer to discuss the future of the PhD in the humanities discipline.
