Self-Guided Modules for Graduate Students

The following modules are self-guided multimedia lessons that address key aspects of the graduate student experience. To get the most out of each module, we recommend following it through from start to finish, but you can also jump directly to a specific section. Each module was developed by a North Carolina A&T State University faculty member—if you have any questions about content or would like more information, please feel free to contact the faculty member directly (information provided within each module). For additional general information or support, please contact A. Ayanna Boyd-Williams, Assistant Dean of the Graduate School, at (336) 285-2372 or
