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 http://www.wm.edu/as/graduate/graduatecenter/courses/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 College courses are open to all William and Mary graduate students. These courses are zero credit, and are offered at no cost to the student or home department in Graduate Arts and Sciences. The Graduate Center’s College courses are listed below. All courses may be repeated.
