To go or not to go? Decide at least a year in advance! The Career Services Office can help you to prepare.

Graduate school provides access to many careers: teachers in New York state must complete a masters degree to become professionally certified; social workers must earn a MSW to practice; chiropractors gain their license from chiropractic schools; academic faculty achieve access to college teaching through PhDs in their discipline. However, not everyone must go to grad school.
Each person's decision should be based upon his or her career goals and the graduate school options available. Explore options. Read about programs, talk to academic faculty and Career Services staff about possibilities.
