Workshop: Navigating Difficulties in Graduate School

April 8 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Dr. Cami Koepke has generously offered to stage a workshop this Friday for students interested in advanced study. The focus will be on graduate and professional schools and, in particular, on life in a PhD program. So, those of you who are curious about what that transition is like, please consider dropping in on zoom. Here are the details:
Topic: ‘The Devil is in the DetailsNavigating Difficulties in Graduate School’

Overview: A PhD program can be an amazing experience.  But it can also bring challenges beyond the usual ones that you might expect.  In this workshop, we’ll discuss a hodgepodge of ways in which graduate school can be difficult and some strategies for mitigating these challenges if they do arise.  The topics we’ll cover include:
    • Research Institutions, SLACs, and Community Colleges
    • Making the Most of your MA Credits
    • Teaching Load
    • Integrating into the Graduate Community
    • Writing Groups
    • Summer Funding Opportunities
    • Outside Program Opportunities
    • Conference Funding
    • Picking or Leaving an Advisor
    • Jumping through the Hoops
    • Mental and Physical Health
    • Falling Behind and Leaves of Absences
    • What if Graduate School is Not for You?
We hope you can make it!
