Career and Alumni Services The Center for Graduate Career and Professional Development is a resource for graduate students and graduate alumni, providing information about the demands and requirements of the academic and the nonacademic job markets to both master’s- and doctorallevel students. The center provides assistance with all aspects of the job search process, from writing employment application materials such as curricula vitae, résumés, teaching and research statements, and cover and follow-up letters to negotiating terms of employment and salary. Center staff members also assist students with application materials needed to apply for fellowships or other advanced degree programs. Throughout the academic year, the center conducts workshops that focus on different aspects of the job search process, hosts workshops and seminars that address specific professional development skills, and sponsors speakers and events relevant to employment outside of academia.

Inter-University Doctoral Consortium The New School for Social Research is a member of the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC), along with the schools listed below. Students in approved doctoral programs at these institutions have the opportunity to take courses at any other participating institution after securing the approval of their academic advisor and home school IUDC coordinator, the course instructor, and the host school’s IUDC coordinator. Students must be in a doctoral track, and the course taken may not be identical to courses offered at the home institution. Inter-university cross-registration forms, guidelines, and procedures are available in the Office of Academic Affairs and Scholarships. Students register and pay tuition at their home institutions for all courses offered through the consortium, but there may be special fees payable to the host institution. Students cross-registered in the consortium can use the libraries of a host institution while enrolled in its courses. Summer consortium courses are not available to New School for Social Research students.
