Communication Studies Graduate Program Open House: Today from 3:30-5 in 118 Taylor Hall

Today, the School of Communication Studies will host a graduate program open house in 118 Taylor from 3:30-5:00 p.m. So, are you thinking about graduate school?

In my opinion, it’s never too early to start thinking about your future. It’s important to think about what you can do and what you want to do with the degree you’re earning. Will you need a master’s level degree, a certification, or anything in addition to a bachelor to get the job you want?

Another thing to think about is when? When will you need a master’s degree? In many cases, several years experience is recommended before pursuing a master’s degree.

Think it through:

–       Think about your goals. Where do you want to be professionally in 5, 10, 15 years?

–       Explore the field you plan to enter. What will you need in addition to a bachelor’s degree? Do you need experience first? Or a master’s first?

–       Talk to professionals in the field. What did they do? What type of candidate do they want to hire?

–       Use Graduate Coordinators – ask questions of the graduate coordinators while you still can! If you’re thinking about it, have a conversation with a graduate coordinator before you graduate.

We’ll touch on this topic in more detail in future posts. But for now, I hope you start by checking out the School of Communication Studies!
