Professional development opportunities for CLA graduate students

The College of Liberal Arts fosters a climate of professional development for graduate students that encourages a continuous interplay between formal and informal education. The College has partnered with the Graduate School to promote the rich offering of professional development opportunities available at Purdue.

The Purdue Graduate School program of professional development offers numerous opportunities that help students acquire professional skills not covered in their regular classes.

The list of courses and workshops is broad, from using citation management software, such as Zotero, to personal wellbeing, or interviewing skills. You can always sign up on the Purdue Graduate School dedicated page.

The College of Liberal Arts also offers a short webinar in Engaged Science Communication and a series of video tutorials on Data and Science Storytelling.

Professional development is a journey without end. We always welcome ideas and suggestions for other offerings. Drop us a note at
