Topic Details


The experience of graduate school is different for master’s and doctoral students, and not just because master’s programs are shorter than Ph.D. programs. Master’s students often have unique needs and goals. For example, recent surveys reveal that master’s students have more anxiety about their careers and their future job search. Helping master’s students be successful requires different types of resources, support, and encouragement compared to doctoral students. The panelists in this workshop will provide tips and resources for best supporting master’s students’ success during and after their time in our programs.
