Is Grad School for Me?
Who/what is a graduate degree for?
Meeting a standard: A graduate degree (typically a master’s) is a professional requirement in some fields.
Advancing your career: An advanced degree can help you earn promotion within your company or advancement in your chosen field, particularly in an increasingly competitive labor market.
Changing fields: Many people work in career fields unrelated to their bachelor’s degree, and others want to change their career track. A graduate degree can help, and often makes more sense than pursuing another undergraduate degree.
Which graduate degree is right for me?
The choice of graduate degree depends on your interests and career goals.
In most cases, you don’t necessarily have to pursue a graduate degree in the same field as your undergraduate degree.
