Graduate School Resources

Graduate school is an opportunity to learn more about a particular discipline, enhance job and career satisfaction, increase earning or advancement potential, or meet the requirements for your chosen profession. There are several aspects to consider before applying, including knowing the specific interests, skills and values that may influence your decision. The application process may involve entrance exams, letters of recommendation, personal essays and more, depending on the program. 

Whether you're just beginning to consider graduate school, are hesitant about the application process, or uncertain what program to pursue, you may want to take advantage of the helpful resources available on-line and at the Career Center. 

Graduate school advising is available by appointment. Pre-scheduling allows us to give you the attention you deserve. Students can schedule an appointment in-person at our office, by phone at 413-572-5206 or by email at careers@westfield.ma.edu.

Keep in mind that faculty in your academic discipline are also great resources concerning graduate study. Contact your academic advisor for more information.
