The Office of Professional Development (OPD) positions graduate students and postdoctoral researchers for success in their careers at UMass and beyond. To accomplish this objective, we help students develop the professional knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in academia, industry, public policy and the non-profit sector. Our training programs encompass a broad spectrum of activities—including presentations, panel discussions, seminars, workshops, and site visits—that range in duration from one hour to a semester or longer. Each of these instructional sessions builds competency in at least one of four key areas: teaching, communication, leadership & management, and career preparation.
GrantSearch for Grad Students (GSGS) helps graduate students at UMass Amherst seek extramural support for their studies. We show graduate students how to identify and apply for fellowships and grants from sources outside the university.
The Versatile PhD is a web-based resource that helps graduate students, particularly those in humanities and social science, identify and prepare for possible non-academic careers.
