What is a Grad College Shop Talk?

Your shop is everything that has to do with your graduate degree, including program requirements, research, and more. Grad College Shop Talks provide presentations in key areas of your shop—everything from strategies for moving through your degree to research support to disseminating your scholarship to planning for your career.

There are three categories of Shop Talks: Degree SuccessResearch Development, and Career Prep. Click on any of those categories in the blocks at the top of this page to see the Shop Talks in that category we have scheduled for the coming year.

Our Shop Talks are always free, and we invite you to join us for as many sessions in our different areas as you would like!

Come talk shop with The Graduate College!
