Expanding Horizons Workshop Series

​The School of Graduate Studies (SGS), in partnership with student service providers at Queen’s, offers Expanding Horizons - a series of workshops and seminars to support the academic, personal, and professional success of our graduate students. Graduate students are encouraged to participate according to their needs and interests and may take one or as many workshops/seminars as they would like.

Graduate students may also be interested in attending an assortment of workshops across theme areas in order to earn a not-for-credit Certificate in Professional Development in the process. Expanding Horizons offers workshops in five (5) skill areas and students who complete at least one (1) workshop from each of the five areas and a minimum of 12 workshops in total will receive a certificate of completion from the School of Graduate Studies.

The program is based on a framework proposed by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies which identifies areas of skills and competencies that prepare graduate students for their future roles and that are not typically integrated into their academic programs
