Applying to Grad School in the Humanities: Sharing Personal Experiences

Friday, December 2, 2011 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm

This Friday (Dec. 2) at 5:00 PM EST (via live stream: ) Jess Banda and I will be sharing tips on navigating the graduate admissions process. Jess and I are senior undergraduate students in Michigan Technological University’s Scientific and Technical Communication program, and are applying to graduate programs in the Humanities.

Our presentation will focus on information that is not available online or in grad school prep books. We will be sharing frank personal stories about our experiences in the graduate school admissions process, such as how we overcame the stress of applying, what we learned about ourselves and academia in the process, and how our experiences differed from each other.

Topics will also include:

  • The basics of applying
  • Online resources about graduate school
  • How to deal with feeling lost
  • Networking in academia
  • Understanding impostor syndrome

We will also have faculty on hand to discuss how they review applications and what may cause them to accept or deny applicants.

Live video of the event will begin streaming at 5:00 PM EST on Friday Dec. 2 at the following location: *A recording will also be available online after the presentation.

Thank you, we hope you and/or your students find this event useful!
