Exploring Graduate School

Graduate School

Considering Graduate School? Begin here!

Graduate school is an opportunity to examine a field of your choice with more specificity and direction, and it can provide you with the tools you need to succeed in the industry of your choice. Preparation for grad school can begin as early as your first year of college as you begin conversations with your Advisor for Career Exploration about how your values, interests, and strengths align with potential fields of study.  

Review the resources on this page to develop a concrete understanding of the graduate programs you are interested in. From there, we welcome you to make an appointment in Handshake with the relevant industry-specific Advisor who will support you in the application process. We look forward to talking with you!

(If you're unsure how to even start thinking about graduate school, we've designed this Graduate School Worksheet: Getting Started, which has questions and prompts that can help you clarify your priorities, values, and goals, and provides concrete next steps as you explore the possibilities!)
