2 Dear PEL Student, This guide is designed to help you begin exploration of graduate schools and programs. Graduate programs offer you an opportunity to continue studies at more advanced and concentrated levels. Careful selection of the institution and your program is important in this exploration process. Also important is determining how you plan to apply a graduate degree professionally and personally. Undertaking the career research necessary to answer all questions you might have about a graduate school or program is essential as well. Important in your decision process is the guidance only a subject matter expert can give to you. After doing research and getting up-to-date information on interesting programs, make sure you set up an appointment with a professor who is a discipline expert to have an in-depth discussion of your personal goals and the options that are available to you. You will find a list of discipline experts later in this guide. Many PEL graduates have gone on for advanced education. While the majority of our students continue their education at universities in Florida, many have gone on to schools all over the nation. Some of the universities PEL alumni have attended include the University of South Carolina, Pennsylvania State University, Washington State University, Clemson University, George Washington University, Golden Gate University, Webster University, Loyola University, Thunderbird: the American Graduate School of International Management, Princeton University, and the University of New Mexico, as well as various law schools. The programs our students choose also show great diversity. Along with programs in business and human services, PEL graduates have chosen programs in urban and regional planning, curriculum development, gerontology, public administration, literature, American studies, instructional design, law, health services administration, library and information sciences, German, criminology, information systems, art history, illustration, and special education, just to name a few. You are about to begin yet another exciting journey! While graduate school will be hard work and long hours (something to which PEL students are accustomed), it will also be full of rewards and inspiration. Good luck to you as you begin planning for your next educational goal. PEL Student Services

4 EXPLORING GRADUATE SCHOOL Graduate school is a commitment of time, money, energy, and effort. The following are some issues to consider as you begin your exploration. Why a master s degree? When considering graduate school, you need to consider your short and long-term goals. A master's degree is required for many positions in education, social work, and public health. It will help you get better jobs in computer science or business. Do you want to earn more money? Are you changing directions entirely from your undergraduate course of study? If you are changing fields, be aware that you may be required to take some additional courses prior to beginning your graduate program. Location A key decision is whether you can or want to relocate to pursue graduate study; this decision will define the range of options you consider. Geography, weather, and proximity to family and friends may be as important to you as the excellence of the program. Distance learning programs may be an option, given your aspirations, field of study, and learning style. A cautionary note: in some professions a degree from a distance learning program is considered a hindrance to hiring or promotion, while in other professions the nontraditional program is considered a neutral factor. Consult with discipline faculty about the wisdom of choosing traditional or nontraditional graduate programs. Research the focus of the graduate program and its faculty Gather information on the schools you are interested in attending. Do your background and interests match the research projects being worked on in the graduate program? Conduct research to find scholarly works written by the graduate faculty. Find a school where there are at least two faculty members with whom you would like to work based upon their reputation and the focus of their research. The breadth of a graduate program (high-quality faculty in a broad range of sub-areas) also can be a sign of a good graduate program. Build on positive relationships with your Eckerd professors You can actually increase your chances of getting into the graduate school of your choice by developing good relationships with your academic mentor and/or undergraduate professors. These relationships are important because these are the people you will ask to write recommendations for you. If however, you have worked a number of years and are pursuing a graduate degree, your work supervisor may also act as a reference for you. 3

5 Be prepared to focus Most people who consider graduate school have a strong interest in their subject before they start graduate work and have confidence in their ability to do work at that level. Graduate school is different in many ways from work on a bachelor's degree. You will specialize in a single field and work closely with professors and a cohort group of students in your area of interest. Why a doctorate? Do you want to enter a profession, teach in higher education, or do scholarly or scientific research? Those particular goals require several years of concentrated study and research. A Ph.D. is required or preferred for many of these jobs, especially research and academic positions, although the necessity for a Ph.D. can depend upon the field or situation. If a doctorate is your ultimate goal, discuss this early in your program with a discipline mentor. Teaching in higher education Choosing a graduate school with a strong reputation in the area you want to study is critical if you want to pursue an academic career. You will have to remain flexible about your ultimate position and consult with faculty in your discipline to match your goals with your graduate program. ACCREDITATION There are two kinds of accreditation: institutional (college and university accreditation) and program accreditation. Accreditation is an assurance of quality in terms of the curriculum and instruction you will receive. Institutional accreditation Institutional accreditation is an issue that needs your attention. Many schools and some universities will claim to be accredited and some even claim to have national accreditation; however, only the regional accrediting associations are recognized throughout the U.S. as having curriculum and instruction at acceptable levels of educational quality. Accreditation is determined on the basis of a rigorous set of criteria established by peers and reviewed on a regular basis by the accrediting board. Be sure that the institution you want to attend is accredited by one of these six U.S. regional accrediting associations: New England Association of Schools and Colleges, NEASC-CIHE Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, MSA North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, NCA Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, NASC Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, SACS-CC Western Association of School and Colleges, WASC-Sr. Professional accreditation 4

6 In the U.S. there is an additional type of accreditation -- professional accreditation by program area. Most academic programs in the humanities, sciences, some social sciences, and other disciplines do not use program accreditation to guarantee quality; however, there are some disciplines in which professional accreditation is a guarantee of a quality program. Listed below are selected professional accrediting bodies for applied professional programs: Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Service Administration Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy American Bar Association American Library Association American Psychological Association Association of American Law Schools Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs Council on Rehabilitation Education Council on Social Work Education National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education Planning Accreditation Board EVALUATING PROGRAMS Start early It is important to start early when thinking about graduate school. Begin identifying and evaluating graduate programs to which you might apply. Talk to people with a graduate degree in your field of interest. If your goal is to teach in an academic field, it is imperative that you speak directly with professors who are teaching that subject. Refer to the list of PEL discipline experts on page 10 for the person to contact. If you want to be a lawyer, talk with the pre-law advisor early in your program; interview lawyers in the community as well, since they can give you an idea of what it is like to work in that field. Visit the Campus If possible, tour the campus and surrounding community. Make an appointment to talk with a professor and graduate students in the program. Ask questions about options for graduates after degree completion. What career or educational options have been pursued after completion of the program? What assistance does the program provide to graduates seeking employment or additional education? 5

7 General Questions 1) Is the institution regionally accredited? 2) What are the breadth and depth of the class offerings in the program? 3) Most schools require entrance examinations such as the: GRE (various graduate majors) - MCAT (medical school) - LSAT (law school) - GMAT (MBA degree) - Check with your desired program to see what they require. 4) Do you have the undergraduate requirements for admission to the program? 5) How long will it take to complete the degree and will the faculty members with whom you want to work be available during that time? 6) Is it necessary to have program accreditation in your field? 7) What percentage of applicants is accepted into the program? 8) Is the research library "wired" for electronic courses/research? 9) How do graduates of the program perform on professional exams? 10) What percentage of graduates is able to find employment in the field? 11) What are the financial aid prospects? 12) Are the faculty members publishing in areas of interest to you? ADMISSIONS Admissions committees are looking for various criteria There are many ways to approach writing the admissions essay or personal statement. Peterson's Guide to Graduate Programs suggests that admissions committees may be looking for the following when evaluating the essay portion of the application: Motivation and commitment to a field of study Writing ability Expectations regarding the program & career opportunities Major areas of interest Research and/or work experience Educational background Immediate and long-term goals Maturity Reasons for deciding to pursue graduate work in a specific field Reasons for wanting to study at a particular institution Personal qualities; what your presence would add to the diversity of the entering class The admissions essay The committee should get a sense of who you are and why you want to attend a particular institution and program. Much like a resume for a job, an admissions essay must convey to the admissions committee the important information for which they are looking so that they will consider you for a place in their program. You must understand the questions asked within the application and answer them in a serious manner 6

8 Proofread carefully If you use your writing talent to make the statement articulate, interesting, fresh, and lively, your statement will stand out as memorable. However, the most important part of the admission's essay is expressing your accomplishments either in the academic arena or in the chosen career field that relates to the graduate program. Remember to proofread and ask someone else to proofread too! Who should write your letters of recommendation? Your undergraduate professors usually write letters of recommendation. Choose professors who know you well enough to assess your intellectual ability, motivation, and willingness to do graduate-level work. The quality of your participation and work in each class is what will distinguish you in your professors' minds when they are asked to assess you. Ask well in advance, at least a month, and speak with your professors before sending any forms to them. Give letter writers an outline It is helpful to provide your professors with your GPA, the names of courses you have taken with them, activities with which you have been involved both on and off campus, and any significant awards, publications, or distinctions you have received. This information provides them with material for a more descriptive recommendation. What about non-academic recommendations? Ask the graduate program whether letters written by non-academic professionals such as college staff and job supervisors are acceptable. In some fields they are not desirable. Fill out as much of the forms as possible for the recommendation writers. Don't forget to include an envelope with the proper postage. FINANCIAL AID FAFSA Funding from the federal government and individual states, such as the PELL Grant and state grants for undergraduate students, does not exist for graduate students. Federal loans, however, are available to graduate students. Just as for undergraduate work, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered. Prior student loans also may be deferred while enrolled in graduate school. Each student should check with his or her loan servicer about the enrollment requirements and the deferment forms that must be filled out by both the student and the graduate school. 7

9 Research your financial aid options early. There is often money available from graduate schools and outside resources. Students must work very hard to locate, apply, and then secure these awards. There is much competition for graduate aid, and openings are not always available each year because some awards are renewable. These awards should be researched well in advance because application for them may be required a full year prior to the start of the academic year. Most financial assistance is departmentally or institutionally based. Teaching and research fellowships and assistantships are funded by the individual institutions. Answers to your questions pertaining to the availability of these assistantships, as well as the applications for these positions, will come from each individual department. Personal contact with the departments is essential. There may be openings in other departments that are available to all graduate students, regardless of major. For instance, an administrative position or a career counseling internship/assistantship may be available. Students from a variety of disciplines may qualify for the award even if the area is not their field of interest. Fellowships and assistantships may originate outside the institution Some fellowships and assistantships come from outside the graduate school, and normally do not require service at the institution attended. Large foundations and corporations typically fund these fellowships, so application is open to large numbers of people. Contact the PEL Graduate Fellowship Advisor (see bottom of page 10). Other non-cash awards There are other awards that although they do not provide cash-in-hand or a stipend, are still attractive. Programs such as the Teacher Service Cancellation/Deferment Option Program in which students with a bachelor's degree teach in identified "critical shortage areas" of the country, may provide a reduction or cancellation of already acquired student loans. Tuition abatement may be available to highly qualified students. Veterans educational benefits Veterans' educational benefits vary based on the time period of active duty. Each veteran needs to consult with a VA education benefits representative to verify the existence of funds for graduate school. DISTANCE LEARNING Technology has changed many graduate programs Communications technologies and the Internet have extended the boundaries of learning. Students formerly limited to classrooms now can utilize alternative forms of delivery systems to pursue their studies with few limits of geography or time. The challenge for students is to identify the institutions which deliver the learning programs most suited to their learning styles and goals and that do so with maximum efficiency and support for students. Choosing a distance learning program begins with students knowing what they want and finding the right schools for their needs. 8

10 Some distance programs can hinder career progression You should be aware that some occupations are not receptive to students who have studied in distance learning programs. Some professions and employers will prefer traditional educational preparation at the graduate level. The reputation of the institution will be important in terms of how a distance learning degree is viewed as well. Are you suited for a distance learning environment? It is important to assess your personal learning and study style to ascertain whether distance learning is right for you. Are you self-confident and self-motivated? Are you precise in identifying areas of specific intellectual guidance and assertive in seeking assistance? Are you comfortable with the technology being used for communication within the program? Is the program's communication time synchronous or asynchronous? Will you be in a remote classroom receiving instruction via satellite link, or will you be studying material on-line at any time in any place? Will you periodically meet with a cohort of fellow students on-line, through teleconference, or face-to-face? Carefully assess program format and interaction levels With respect to the variety of distance-learning options, you need to scrutinize a distance program much the same way you would assess a program administered on a traditional campus. Graduate programs require maximum interaction between professors and students. For this reason few universities offer graduate programs which are offered entirely by distance. Most universities that offer graduate study by distance format retain some residency requirements. It still may be best to choose an institution within affordable commuting distance. Any program is worth exploring further if it provides individual interaction with professors teaching and publishing in your field of study through the use of communication technology with which you are comfortable. Carefully assess the technological aspects of any distance learning program When exploring a distance learning institution, use the technology on which the program relies to deliver its program. For example, if you are seeking a program that uses webbased instruction, explore the online interactive functions they provide to ask questions of both administrative and academic staff. This is the best way to test how comfortable the administrators and professors are with the technology and will indicate how well and frequently they will communicate with you when you become a student. Also, you might want to contact former students to inquire about the amount and quality of academic and administrative support they received when they were in the program. The Internet provides resources to contact schools and get the most current information on their distance offerings. Perhaps a combination of residence classes and distance learning will be possible in your program. 9
