What influenced your decision to go to graduate school?

 I was eager to learn as much as possible about history and methods for effectively teaching history.  The school where I was teaching provided financial support for teachers who were willing to enroll in a graduate program related to their teaching responsibilities, so I jumped at the opportunity.  

 

How did you explore graduate school?

I wanted to find a school nearby that met both my academic and scheduling needs.  Slippery Rock University’s history department had an excellent reputation and the graduate courses were in the evening, which allowed me to attend classes after school hours.

 

Do you have any tips related to the application process?

Try to connect with others who have been through the graduate program you are considering.  Find out if it met their learning needs and what the program requires in terms of time and academic investment.
