Meet with a Humanities Mentor
Are you interested in the humanities? Have you taken the Humanities Sequence, and don’t know what to do next? Want to learn about opportunities available to students interested in the humanities at and after Princeton?
The Humanities Mentorship’s Coffee Conference program offers an informal setting in which students interested in the humanities can connect with mentors over a cup of coffee and receive academic advice and guidance. Students can browse the mentor directory to find a mentor whose interests match theirs, and contact them to schedule a coffee conference (coffee’s on us!).
