Searching for Grad School Programs--A Multi-Step Process

When searching for graduate programs, follow the steps below:

  1. Use online graduate program directories, like the ones in the middle box to the right, to find out what schools offer programs in your area of interest and location.  These listings will give you brief information about that school's graduate program(s).
  2. If you already know a specific school has the program you're exploring, then go to step 3.
  3. To find out more specific information about each school's program, you will likely need to go to the school's specific web site and search for that degree.  If the web address is not given in the online directories, you will need to do a web search to find the school, then search its web site for the degree program.
