How do I learn about graduate programs?
There is a multitude of available resources. A good place to begin your research is to talk with faculty members and other persons you respect about schools and programs. Alumni are good contacts for information. Web sites, such as the many listed here are required reading. Peterson’s Guides to Graduate Education books are easy to use and provide program profiles including degrees offered, enrollment statistics, admission and degree requirements, costs, availability of financial aid, research facilities, phone numbers, and addresses to request information and catalogs. They also offer in depth information about the application process, required tests, types of aid available, letters of reference and application essays. Peterson’s guides can be found on the web at Peterson’s Education Center.

Additional information on program specifics can be obtained from the school’s graduate catalog and from the academic department.
