Graduate School Overview
Some people go straight to graduate school after college while others choose to gain a few years work experience first. Still others may not have considered grad school until an unexpected period of unemployment or the desire to change career path makes it a sensible option.
Whether or not a Master’s degree is right for you may depend on the overall competitiveness of the field you wish to enter. In some cases, a Masters may be a requirement even for entry-level positions as it is the case with many positions within the United Nations.
In other situations, a Master’s may not be strictly necessary, but getting one may make you stand out from the crowd of applicants who have only a Bachelor’s to offer.
