Event Description 

Join us for this mini-workshop and panel that reviews all of the basic information you need to write a great prospectus in the Social Sciences! The first 30 minutes will be dedicated to covering the fundamentals: what the prospectus is and other writing tips and resources. Next, there will be a 45 minute Q&A with advanced-stage graduate student panelists from various social science disciplines. The panel will conclude with an opportunity to speak with the panelists in small breakout rooms - this is a great opportunity to ask specific questions that may not have been covered in the main session and Q&A! Panelists include: Daniel Goldstein (Political Science), Vanessa Bittner (Sociology), and Lucylle Armentano (Psychology). These students have been through the prospectus process and will be able to speak to their experiences writing this unique document as well as the specifics of their departmental requirements. Intended audience: Graduate students in the social sciences who are currently writing the prospectus, or who want to get a head start on thinking about it for future years.
