Center for Language Studies

Graduate Students

The CLS prioritizes the success of graduate students in all language departments during their time at Brown and beyond. Students are encouraged to participate in technology, pedagogy and professionalization workshops and to enroll in the CLS doctoral certificate - La Peace. The CLS creates a community for language graduate students starting with the annual fall orientation, continuing with monthly workshops and social events and by offering expanded opportunities through the certificate and proctorships. 

Careers for Modern Language Ph.D.s - Preparing now for the future

Our in-house workshops focus on preparation for teaching languages now and for jobs in the academy. CLS works with the Sheridan Center and Digital Learning and Design to help students in modern languages find resources they need. We liaise with professional organizations and the Career Lab to bring more perspectives as we support graduate students.
