The Graduate Writing Lab supports Yale graduate and professional school students, as well as postdoctoral scholars and scientists, to succeed as researchers, writers, and communicators. We address skills and questions that are not usually addressed through coursework and traditional academic training.

Graduate Student Organizations

As a graduate student at Yale, you have many opportunities to get involved in the community, make and build relationships, learn leadership and professional skills, serve others, and have fun. Over 60 graduate student organizations are currently registered through McDougal Graduate Student Life (GSL) - GSAS. Graduate Students looking for Yale organizations and involvement opportunities can search Yale Connect for groups or interests by name and/or keyword. Join and connect with others.

Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning

Yale University established the Center for Teaching and Learning in 2014 to support students and faculty across the campus. In alignment with President Peter Salovey’s goal of creating a “more unified Yale,” the center consolidated the various teaching, tutoring, writing and technology-enabled learning programs distributed across the University.  The Poorvu Center supports effective course design and promotes evidence-based teaching methods for university instructors, including faculty and teaching fellows. The Poorvu Center supports student learning and provides opportunities for students and postdoctoral scholars throughout the University to develop as teachers, mentors and leaders.

Master’s students are encouraged to use the time at Yale to develop academically and professionally, and leverage Yale’s resources to refine your skills through extracurricular and professional experiences. This versatility will empower you to take that next step forward and the Office of Career Strategy is here to help.
