Pathway to Graduate School

Annually in April, SHPE's Graduate Development Team hosts an event series designed for undergraduates focused on preparing for graduate STEM programs.

Why You Should Attend

Academic Goal Setting

Reflecting on your academic goals is key to understanding the right path for you. Our events help evaluate the factors in choosing programs to apply to.

Understanding Career Paths

Learning how a specific type of graduate program can benefit your desired career path will inform your decision of which ones to apply to.

Envisioning Success

Along with academic and career insight, we invite you to connect with our graduate members, University staff, and administrators at our events for their tips on success.
