Roadmap to Graduate School

If you are thinking about pursuing graduate studies this course will help to dispel some of the misconceptions and prepare you –  ENG 298-MEP (CRN: 56212).

Logistics

ENG 298 is a 1-hr class. The course will meet on Tuesdays at 11:00AM.  The work for this class will mostly be preparation for graduate school applications (such as drafting your personal statement and seeking letters of recommendation).

Class size will be limited so we may ask you to participate in a future semester however we want MEP students who are interested in graduate studies to “step forward” and “be counted”.

This class is intended for students who will be SOPHOMORES and JUNIORS next year.

Topics

  • Why grad school? Is it for me?
  • Differences between MS and PhD
  • Planning for graduate school applications
  • The Role of Undergraduate Research
  • Securing funding for graduate school
