The Graduate College, in collaboration with campus partners including the Steinbright Career Development Center (SCDC), Drexel University Online (DUO), Teaching and Learning Center, Online Learning Council (OLC), Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and others, offers a series of co-curricular courses and programs to help graduate students enhance their professional skills and experience in addition to their graduate academic program.


  • The non-credit Certificate in College Teaching provides Drexel University graduate students and postdocs with the experience and credentials to help them become more effective instructors in higher education or to prepare for careers outside academia that involve training or teaching. This program was developed through collaboration of the Graduate College, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, Teaching and Learning Center, and the Online Learning Council to address the needs of graduate students and postdocs.
  • Foundations of Career Management is a one-credit, non-billable course for graduate students who have a good understanding of their post-graduation career path and want to take their resume writing, interviewing and networking skills to the next level. The course also covers other important facets of the career development process such as values aligned work, cover letter development, personal branding and mentorship. The course was developed through collaboration of the Graduate College, Steinbright Career Development Center, and Drexel University Online.
  • Road to Success: A Guide for Doctoral Students is a self-paced, asynchronous organizational shell in Blackboard Learn meant to guide students through their doctoral journey and provide resources, tips, and key reminders along the way. Students are added upon entry into a doctoral program or once per year in the fall.
