As a professional school, KGI is dedicated to providing services to students to help them prepare for careers in the life sciences industry, government, and non-profit organizations, as well as in medicine and other healthcare professions. Both curricular and co-curricular activities are designed to prepare the graduate with the skills to network, market themselves, apply, interview, and secure rewarding positions after their studies at KGI. The following individuals provide these services and students are encouraged to avail themselves of these resources.
In addition to administrative advising, faculty advisors are available for those majoring in specific concentrations. Students outside of a concentration are not assigned faculty advisors but should seek out faculty for advice on specific topics, and should identify areas of expertise of faculty for advice in subject areas of interest. Students are encouraged to attend faculty office hours and set up appointments through email requests to meet with faculty. Faculty can provide advice regarding the choice of electives, concentrations, and the relationship of KGI curriculum to careers. Furthermore, faculty will write letters of recommendation for students as requested (note that students should provide ample advance-notice for these requests).
