Special Session

Getting Into Grad School - Graduate School in Psychology and Social Work: Getting In and Making It Work

Friday, November 17
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Location: Aqua Salon A & B, Level 3, Aqua Level


Presentation Type: Special Session

This session brings together the perspectives of well-established graduate program directors, faculty mentors, and current graduate students to provide useful information about graduate school to prospective and early-career graduate students, as well as the opportunity for attendees to interact with directors of specific graduate programs. The panelists include representatives from US clinical psychology Ph.D. and Psy.D. programs, Canadian Ph.D. programs, and US Social Work programs.

Panelists will provide information about the graduate school application process, including, how undergraduate students and other prospective applicants can: (1) select a graduate degree and graduate program that meets their training and career goals, (2) best prepare themselves to be successful applicants to graduate programs, and (3) effectively navigate the application process. Panelists will also discuss how, once enrolled in graduate school, students can capitalize on the skills that got them there by focusing on their work ethic, love of learning, passion for research or practice, and channel those skills to build a vita and set of experiences that will prepare them for success at each future step of their graduate training and careers.

The panel will be followed by a question and answer session and by a “Graduate Programs on Parade” session where representatives of graduate programs (typically 30-35 programs) will be available to discuss their particular programs with interested applicants.
