Demystifying Academia: The Hidden Curriculum of Graduate School and the Professoriate


The course is designed for students who seek to apply to and attend graduate school, obtain their Ph.D., and live the life of the mind as a professor. The course has three main goals. First, we will gain a foothold of the various processes that are involved in graduate admissions through accepting an offer to attend graduate school. Second, we will consider the hidden curriculum of graduate school and academia, more broadly. Finally, we will learn some of the nuts and bolts of the research process as well as develop/enhance good habits and skills of those who write well and consistently.
