CARMA PhD Prep Group
The CARMA PhD Prep Group for 2021-2022 is available only to students and faculty who are associated with organizations that are CARMA Institutional Premium or Basic Members. The PhD Prep Group will host a series of live online events that focus on developing research methods knowledge and skills needed for success as a doctoral student and faculty member. Different sessions will focus on topics related to specific needs of early, middle, and late-stage doctoral students.
Examples may include learning the basics of different research methods and data analysis techniques, preparing for comprehensive exams, and developing the research methods section of a dissertation proposal. Others may relate to submitting conference papers and articles to academic journals, editorial review of articles, and job search and career management.
The sessions will also give students from different participating schools the opportunity to network with peers from other schools, and should supplement activities occurring within participants’ doctoral programs.
