Are you considering graduate school? A panel of current graduate students will share their experience on making the decision to pursue a graduate degree and life as a graduate student, as well as offer advice for those considering a graduate education.
Meet with your major advisor and/or a faculty mentors to learn more about graduate study in your field of interest. Questions to consider:
-Will a graduate degree help me achieve my academic/professional goals?
-Am I more interested in a professional degree, or one that emphasizes theory and research in my field?
-What’s the difference between a Master’s and Doctoral program in my field, and which one is right for me?
-Which specific programs might complement my research interests?
-How might I fund a graduate education?
-How can I prepare a strong application to graduate school?
Consider one of our Accelerated Bachelor’s-Master’s Programs.
