The History Department will sponsor a “How to Get into Graduate School” Program on Tuesday, December 1st, at 7 PM, Morris Complex, Room 130. Although significant components of the presentation will focus on the experiences of History majors, all students contemplating graduate school will find the program informative and useful. Please alert students to the program.
Topics to be covered include: deciding to apply to graduate school or not; researching programs and graduate schools; history or another program of study; traditional or online instruction; graduate application process and filling out forms; essays; obtaining letters of reference; preparing for an interview; GRE and other tests to take—and test preparation; setting up a placement file; cost of graduate education and funding sources; types of acceptance, full-time vs. part-time, and opportunities created by graduate study.
Following formal remarks by the panelists, audience questions and discussion will be welcome.
