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 had 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.
Recordings of the sessions can be found on our Department's YouTube page.
Session 1 - Exploring Programs
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.
Session 2 - 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.).
Session 3 - Becoming a Successful Applicant
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.
Session 4 - Making Connections with Faculty
