Apply to Graduate School

Graduate and professional schools are a large commitment in terms of time and labor, and the decision to enter a particular program requires careful deliberation and assessment of career goals and academic interests. Many factors should weigh into the decision, and we recommend that you seek advice from faculty, alumni and others in order to decide if a particular course of study is right for you.

There are academic degrees (M.A., M.S., Ph.D.) which typically involve original research and writing a thesis, and there are professional degrees in business (M.B.A.), medicine (M.D.), law (J.D.), education (M.Ed.), fine arts (M.F.A.), public policy (M.P.P.), social work (M.S.W.) and others.
