This is the first session of the 5-week PhD Plus Summer 2022 Foundations Series.
In this session, we will discuss and uncover “the hidden curriculum” of graduate school to help you navigate the transitions in graduate studies. We will also look at goals and milestones common to one’s academic journey, skills, and personal and career development to help you think about what you want to achieve during your graduate program.
