The Graduate Faculty is committed to the scholarly and professional development of graduate students, and this commitment takes a variety of forms. We steer students toward many opportunities for conference presentation and scholarly publication. Guidance is available at every stage of study and research, and special care is taken to guide Ph.D. candidates through all aspects and phases of the job market, from preparation of crucial application documents to mock interviews.
