So You Want to Get a Ph.D. in the Humanities?

There’s an animated video making the rounds. Posted only one week ago, it’s already been viewed nearly 400, 000 times–which says something about either our thirst for irony or, more likely, our collective sense that there’s something here both funny and true.

So You Want to Get a PhD in English?

The video’s caption reads, “A bright motivated undergrad decides to ask her professor for a recommendation to graduate school.”

You can see it for yourself by clicking on the following link:  “So You Want to Get a Ph.D. in the Humanities.”

  1. O.K., this was really quite funny. Thank-you for the inspiration. Will you please write me a reference letter for graduate school? Haha…I am taking a year off for work; any idea where I can find a job besides McDonald’s?
