The mission of the Graduate Center is to support and promote the culture of advanced study at the College of William and Mary. Through workshops, seminars, and short courses, the Graduate Center provides students with opportunities to develop the professional skills needed to take charge of their own careers. Student participation in Graduate Center programs is voluntary.
The topics and times of workshops and seminars vary each semester. An updated list of workshops and seminars can be found at https://www.wm.edu/as/graduate/graduate-center/index.php. The Graduate Center's short courses typically meet for 1.5-2 hours of instruction each week in the late afternoon or early evening to avoid scheduling conflicts with students' traditional disciplinary courses. These graduate courses (GRAD) arezero credit, and are offered at no cost to the student or home department in Graduate Arts and Sciences. The Graduate Center's course descriptions are listed below. Please search the Dynamic Schedule for the class schedule for the term you are interested in enrolling. All GRAD courses may be repeated.
