Graduate Schools

Graduate Schools

For those who have completed an undergraduate degree and to wish to continue their studies in a specialized field usually consider graduate schools as the next step in their path toward career or academic work. Many people who are successful in their fields have attended graduate schools, and an MA is fast becoming what a BA was only a generation ago.

Many businesses are looking for candidates with specialized degrees, and it is for this reason that graduate schools are becoming more popular for those who are finishing or have finished their undergraduate degree.

The main question that concerns the undergraduate is whether he or she should work for a year or go right into graduate school. It is true that admissions workers in graduate schools often look favorably on candidates who have had some work experience in their field, but this depends very much on the type of field one is entering.
