Professional Development

Professional development encompasses learning and mastering multiple types of knowledge, skills, relationships, and personal traits for all stages of your academic and post-academic careers. Your graduate experience—coursework, research, teaching, mentoring relationships, publishing, presentations and performances, service activities, and experiences in the lab, studio, or public outreach—will develop and enhance professional skills beyond your area of specialization. In addition, the Graduate Division, your department, and other units on campus provide programs to support you in mastering these skills and gaining important experiences.
