Navigating Graduate School & Beyond - Fall
A combination of lectures/presentations, case-study
discussions, question and answer sessions, and panel
discussions. Utilizes faculty members and often external
subject matter experts/guest lecturers.
Dissertation Boot Camp
The Office of Graduate Education has developed Dissertation
Boot camp to help students progress through the difficult
process of writing their dissertation. By offering an
environment and support for intense, focused writing time, the
camp provides participants with the structure and motivation to
overcome typical roadblocks in the dissertation process. Our
goal is to assist each participant in making significant
progress towards completing their project.
This program is directed primarily towards students in the
final stages of writing their dissertation, after their data
has been collected. That is, for the camp to work, you must
have largely completed your research and/or data collection and
analysis so that you are ready to devote substantial time to
writing. An individual working on a dissertation proposal,
Master’s thesis, or other projects could also benefit from the
structured time, space, professional advising, and motivational
support of the program.
