Graduate School in Psychology Showcase
March 1st - 4th & 8th - 11th
If you are thinking about pursuing a graduate degree in psychology, this is a great opportunity to learn more about graduate school! This year, we have 2 weeks of events. Events during the first week are targeted primarily to freshmen and sophomores who are thinking about graduate school; events during the second week are targeted primarily to juniors and seniors who will soon be applying for graduate programs. However, anyone is welcome to attend any of the sessions!
Below, you can find a schedule of the Zoom events and the topics that will be covered. Note that all sessions will have an open Q&A portion at the end to give you a chance to ask questions. To join a session, you can click on the title of the session below, which is hyperlinked.
Week 1 - Freshmen and Sophomores
Learn about topics like how graduate school is different than being an undergraduate, how to find information about graduate programs, a brief overview of different types of graduate programs.
This session will go into more detail about the differences in the types of graduate programs (e.g., Master's vs. Ph.D. vs. Psy.D.).
Learn how to gain relevant experiences and skills that will make you a competitive applicant for graduate school: research, teaching assistantships, the honors program, other campus resources, important skills, and strong references.
Learn how to make connections with faculty inside and outside of the classroom, how to do so in online classes, and why this is so important.
