Graduate School Preparation
You are here
Graduate School differs from your undergraduate education in that it involves specialized study of one specific area. Even though, while at college, you spent some time gaining knowledge in your chosen major, you were introduced to a wide variety of other specialities. Through your curriculum, you were able to gain skills and knowledge that prepared you for graduate school or the world of work.
Graduate school further prepares you for your career interest through specialized courses, research and/or internships. These components will give you practical professional skills and an in depth knowledge of your field of study.
Generally, there are three good reasons to pursue a graduate degree:
~ Your career goal requires an advanced degree
~ You are passionate about a subject and simply want to further your education
~ In your field of work, an advanced degree will open the door to additional career opportunities and
may entitle you to a salary increase
If you are pursuing graduate school for any of the reasons listed below, it is recommended that you consider other options; at least for now...
~ To avoid getting a job
~ Because you don't know what else to do
~ Because someone is telling you to go
Deciding whether to attend graduate school is a decision that requires some careful thought and is one that should not be made lightly.
