Graduate School Guide
What to Look For
Graduate programs may at times carry the same name (e.g. social, experimental, counseling), but programs potentially vary widely within a certain area.
Thus, it is important to decide a number of issues in the course of application. One basic question is - what area of psychology do you wish to pursue? This is a process that may evolve during the course of your undergraduate education or it may be something that you have long decided.
Discuss your possible choices with your advisor and/or with someone who is in the particular field you wish to study. Consult journals from your selected area to see if the articles reflect questions you are interested in.
