Preparing for Graduate School - GRDSCH 200, Autumn 2014

The Graduate School offers an excellent class for students interested in exploring graduate study in more detail:  GRDSCH 200, Preparing for Graduate Education.  The class has plenty of room for fall, and we’d appreciate it if you would get the word out to your students – especially your graduating seniors/seniors.

This course is perfect for graduating seniors who know they are applying to graduate school this fall/winter.  It will set them up to fully understand the application process, work on their statements well before deadlines hit, consider funding issues, and ultimately make decisions.  It is also great for the graduating senior  who is unsure of what graduate school entails and whether they should consider it in their future.  Especially if they are not sure of what they might end up doing when they graduate!  Juniors thinking ahead will also benefit from the class.  Included is discussion and work on preparing an effective application.

This is a 2-cr, CR/NC class, perfect to balance out an autumn quarter schedule!
