Video Series: Considering Grad School

The Career Services team from Penn State World Campus Student Affairs has created a series of videos designed to help guide those who may be considering graduate school. This collection includes six brief videos, each under two minutes long — as well as a compilation video that combines all of the individual clips. The series covers a range of basic topics, such as the pros and cons of a graduate degree, whether it’s ever too late to consider grad school, and reasons why grad school might (or might not) be the right choice for you.

The videos feature Mitchell Patterson, associate director of graduate admissions at Penn State Harrisburg. He discusses important things to consider when making this decision, including:

  • potential financial and professional rewards
  • the time commitment and other responsibilities grad schools expect of students
  • how to choose the grad school program that’s the right fit for you
