A collection of resources for students pursuing graduate education

What is Graduate School?

Once a student has received a bachelor's degree, they may choose to continue their education in graduate school. This typically involves the pursuit of either a master's or doctoral degree. Graduate education is more focused on a particular academic discipline or profession than undergraduate education.
