The University of Charleston, South Carolina at the College of Charleston is partnering with other departments on campus to provide numerous professional development opportunities: one-time events, workshop series, and career skills for graduate students. This variety of offerings allows students to develop a broad array of transferable skills while focusing on particular skill sets of interest throughout their graduate careers.
The Graduate Student Professional Development workshops will also help our graduate students to maximize the full potential of their degrees and certificates after graduation. The weekly workshops will be cover a broad range of topics relevant to students across all disciplines and stages of graduate study. The series will kick off on Monday, September 22, 2014 with a presentation from Environmental Studies program director Dr. Tim Callahan. “Choosing a Ph.D. Program” will focus on the key factors that students should keep in mind to determine the Ph.D. program that is the best fit for them. Dr. Callahan’s talk begins at 3:00 pm and will be held in the Beatty Center Room 301. If you would like to attend this event, please RSPV @email@example.com or call 843-953-1435 to RSVP.
