Are you pursuing a career that requires additional studies beyond your undergraduate degree?  Do you want to obtain a second degree in another field?  Or maybe you’re just curious about how graduate school is different from undergraduate studies.  Whatever the reason, graduate school offers numerous options and opportunities to suit a diverse range of interests and needs.

Pathways is a new workshop series created to provide you with essential knowledge and skills for your path beyond GW. Designed with first-generation students in mind, the virtual workshop series addresses topics such as personal finance, networking, living off-campus, making friends outside of the college environment, creating your own brand, mentorship, and more. 

This session of the Pathways series takes place on January 21 with Professor Lionel Howard, Associate Professor of Educational Research in GW’s Graduate School of Education & Human Development.  Professor Howard will share insight on various aspects of the graduate school process such as: when to pursue graduate school, suggestions on applying to programs, and what to expect once in graduate school.  Questions are encouraged, as there will be a Q&A at the end of the session.
