How Can I Find Out About Graduate Schools?

Current college students and bachelor's degree program graduates interested in continuing their education in master's degree programs can take advantage of many resources containing information on schools offering graduate-level programs. These resources include school staff and online materials related to postsecondary education.

Academic Advisors

College students who think they might be interested in graduate-level study after earning their bachelor's degrees can discuss their educational goals with an academic advisor. Academic advisors have access to a wealth of information, including college databases that show whether or not an institution offers graduate-level degree programs, admissions requirements for graduate programs and scholarship information.

Search Engines

Search engines such as Google and Yahoo! provide the most efficient way to find information on the internet. Students looking for master's degree programs can type in search terms such as 'master's degree' to narrow down the type of degree desired and 'site:.edu' to further refine the search to include only educational sites.

College Databases

College databases, such as those hosted by The College Board and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), allow students to search directories of the country's accredited public and private postsecondary institutions. The NCES' College Navigator features search options such as degree level, location, student enrollment, tuition and institution type. Search results can be downloaded and saved to the computer for use at a later date.

Online Publications

Master's degree program information can also be found on many publishers' websites, such as those run by U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review, both of which publish school rankings and allow students to search for graduate schools by their areas of interest. Prospective graduate students can also look at each school's financial aid, admissions and tuition info. Print versions of these publications are also available.
