Graduate School

Graduate School Planning


Before you commit to graduate school, you should know why you’re going in the first place. Grad school takes a lot of work. If you’re going just because you don’t know what else to do, you probably won’t make the most of it. As you decide, ask yourself whether grad school is the right choice for you at the moment.

The decision to attend graduate school is highly individual; however, it could be a good fit if you are:

  • Pursuing a specific occupation that requires an advanced degree such as medicine, law, university teaching
  • Committed to a specific field of study and want to gain knowledge and expertise
  • Aware of how an advanced degree will further your career goals

Before you make the decision, research what’s needed to succeed in the field you choose. In some cases, you may thrive with only a bachelor’s degree. There are many career options for different Cal Poly Pomona majors.
