Graduate School

Indentifying Graduate Programs

A first step is to identify and prioritize those factors important to you in a graduate or professional degree program. These may include:

  • Graduate school faculty and their area of research
  • Hamilton faculty recommendations
  • Program's area(s) of specialization
  • Your competitiveness for specific program
  • Overall reputation of program
  • Career/employment success of graduates
  • Location
  • Financial aid available

A next step is to determine programs that best meet your criteria. We recommend Peterson's Graduate Planner to identify programs.
