One of our endeavors in the EGSC is to provide the Graduate students in English with the resources they need to develop their professional marketability. Just as the English Department here at CSU, Chico endeavors to prepare students aptly for the challenges they will face in subsequent graduate and terminal degree programs as well as in the profession, the EGSC aims to be as facilitative towards those endeavors as is possible. With this in mind we have created this page as a center for all the professional development resources you may need. This includes links and updates to regional and national literary and scholastic conferences, links to writing associations and journals, and also information on Graduate Programs you may be interested in attending after Chico.

**Master's Thesis / Project Planning: This workshop will help students start planning their Master’s Thesis/Project.
