Are you asking yourself any of the following questions?

  • Do I need a graduate degree to for my particular career goals? Will an advanced degree improve my chances for long-term career success?
  • Which graduate and professional school programs are options for SoHE students, including programs in the psychology, sociology, education, and health care fields?
  • Should I work for a few years before applying to graduate school?
  • What is the difference between a CCLS, MA, MS, MFT, MSW, PsyD, EdS, PhD, OT, PT, and PA degrees and certifications? What types of careers require one or more these degrees?

Join us for part one in a series of informative presentations about graduate and professional school, specifically for students in the School of Human Ecology (SoHE). Attendees will learn about a variety of graduate and professional schools programs of interest to SoHE students, including Occupational Therapy, School Psychology, Physician Assistant, Special Education, Family Law, and Couples and Family Therapy, just to name a few. Strategies for increasing your chances of being accepted to competitive programs, financing a graduate degree, and success skills for graduate school will also be discussed.

Please attend any or all of the sessions offered as part of this series. No need to register, just show up!

Presenter: Kristy Burkholder, PhD, Faculty Associate in Human Development and Family Studies in the School of Human Ecology.
