Geneseo students are highly motivated and often decide, either upon graduation or after several years, to pursue an advanced degree. However, graduate school involves a significant commitment of time, money and energy; in some cases, even more of these commitments than undergraduate study. Graduate school may prepare you for a profession such as law, medicine, or social work, or it can prepare you for an academic career as a scholar or a researcher (Ph.D. programs). But it should never be entered into as a way to avoid or delay a job search. “Don’t go until you know” is a sensible mantra for those on the fence about pursuing an advanced degree.
