Grad Degree+ gives graduate students an opportunity to develop and refine the transferable skills highly sought by employers. One-meeting mini-courses offered through HR such as "Basics of Diversity," "Communicating with Success," and "Leading Effective Teams" will help graduate students become better, more informed leaders while in graduate school and prepare them for a diverse range of future career paths.
To earn the Grad Degree+ students must complete the core components below, seven electives based on interest, and a series of four 1.5 hour-long workshops across the academic year. Workshops will be co-led by Dr. Sarah Lyon (Arts and Sciences), Dr. Morris Grubbs (The Graduate School), and Erin Shoot (The Graduate School).
