Graduate school centres your education around further “academic” (generating original research in a particular discipline), or “professional” (developing skills and knowledge for a specific profession), studies. You may be interested in graduate school if you have a focus of study that you’d like to explore further or you want to pursue a professional degree.
Graduate School is different from undergraduate school because:
- It is a more concentrated course of study and expectations regarding the quality and quantity of your academic work are greater.
- Classes are smaller to encourage critical discourse
- It offers experience via internships, teaching, or research
- You produce original research
