Achieve Your Career Goals
Duke Graduate School alumni/ae pursue leadership roles not only in academia, but also in government, research, non-profit, and corporate or industry settings in the United States and internationally. Given this, professional development should be at the forefront of students' minds at every stage of their graduate careers. Students are encouraged to participate in training opportunities that complement their research, augment their skills, and help them identify careers in which they will thrive.
To help graduate students achieve their career goals, the Graduate School offers or sponsors numerous courses, programs, awards, certificate programs and professional development services. In this section, you can learn about opportunities in Teaching & Technology, the Preparing Future Faculty program, certificate in teaching options, and Teaching Mini-grants or teaching awards. The English for International Students program in the Graduate School provides ongoing support to our large international student population.
In addition, we work closely with many other units at Duke and beyond to provide these resources, including the Career Center, Center for Instructional Technology, Office of Postdoctoral Services, other schools at Duke, the Graduate and Professional Student Council, and graduate student groups or organizations.
