Professional Development Courses

The Graduate Center offers enrolled doctoral students a range of professional development courses designed to help them in their careers and professional activities. These courses do not carry credit, are ungraded, and do not appear on the student's transcript.  Students register for them as they do their academic classes and can find them listed under "Professional Development" in the course schedule.
