Curriculum Vitae

A curriculum vitae (also known as a CV, C.V. or vita) is a comprehensive, detailed account of your academic credentials and achievements.

A basic for your academic dossier, it is also required to apply for academic grants, fellowships, and conferences, sometimes in abbreviated form.

Your CV is a living document: it will grow as you accomplish more. A.B.D.s and recent graduates have vitas that are from two to five pages in length while senior faculty can have documents of ten to more than 25 pages.
