Wed, Oct 29, 2014
3:30 - 4:30 P.M.
Texas Room, Criminal Justice Center

Presented by Dr. Gaylene Armstrong and Dr. Melinda Tasca.

The decision to pursue a Ph.D. is a difficult one to make. A doctoral level education requires intensive planning, time management skills, and a high level of commitment. Dr. Danielle Boisvert will discuss the pros and cons of continuing education past the master's degree, along with the traits that universities look for when recruiting Ph.D. students. This event is directed specifically at master's students, but doctoral level students are invited to attend to share their experiences in the program and offer advice. Any master's student who is on the fence about applying to a Ph.D. program or going into the job market would benefit from this specialized discussion. Feel free to bring a doctoral program applications to share. Presented by the College of Criminal Justice and the Criminal Justice Graduate Student Organization.
