Surviving Graduate School Part Time

Volume: 1

Are you considering graduate school as a way to further your career? Are you already pursuing an advanced degree part time? If so, Surviving Graduate School Part Time is a must read. If you are at the point in your career when a graduate degree is needed as a professional credential, the prospect of graduate school may seem daunting and ill-timed. You may already work long hours in order to establish your career and have probably made major financial commitments, such as the purchase of a home, or an automobile, in addition to paying off undergraduate loans. This practical volume addresses the concerns of the working professional seeking a graduate degree while trying to maintain career and family responsibilities. The helpful information, advice, and short cuts author Von V. Pttman provides are gleaned from nearly 20 years of service in the continuing education divisions at three major state universities. Beginning with an overview of the development of graduate school as a part-time phenomenon, the author goes on to explore practical matters such as choices of schools and programs as well as strategies to help cut throughùor cope withùuniversity bureaucracies and financing. The author also includes appendixes that provide valuable information regarding regional accrediting associations, academic guidelines, entrance exam preparation, and financial aid.
