Graduate School

The decision to go to graduate school is an important one, and should be done for the right reason. When you make this plan, be sure that you have clarity about what you want to study, and how that is going to enhance your career goal. You should also be prepared for scholarly and research work. Your decision should not be influenced by strong pressure from friends or family, etc. Graduate school is a major investment in time and money; you should not approach the decision haphazardly. It is important to set a goal, and consider how your undergraduate degree will help you reach that goal. Click below for more information:
