Navigating Graduate School

Navigating Graduate School: Academic Success Strategies for First-Generation College Students

Michelle Luna, UCLA Graduate Writing Consultant

This workshop will provide useful strategies for navigating graduate school successfully. We will focus on tips and tricks that will help you succeed, as well as elucidate aspects of the "hidden curriculum," or things you're expected to know but not explicitly taught. We will cover a broad spectrum of topics such as managing writing requirements, using organizational tools to stay on track, communicating effectively with mentors to meet your needs, and networking at conferences to build professional relationships. (Approx. 53 mins.) This workshop was recorded in 2023.
