Planning Your Path to a Satisfying Career

Stony Brook University has a long tradition of integrating its research and educational missions. Graduate and Postdoctoral Professional Development strengthens and expands this tradition by working with academic departments, programs and other units across campus to ensure that undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral scholars receive a well-rounded and multi-dimensional education. From one-on-one advising to workshops to short-courses, SBU provides an array of career and professional development opportunities for graduate students. Stony Brook is also a member of the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium, which allows doctoral students to take courses unavailable to them at SBU at one of the partner universities.  With this integrated approach, Stony Brook prepares our vibrant and diverse community of scholars to become the explorers, the leaders, and the innovators of tomorrow.
