Applying to Graduate School

Applying to graduate school requires a good deal of planning and research. Graduate schools offer many programs with unique experiences and philosophies. You will need to do a lot of investigation to find that program that fits with your values, experiences and goals.

We hope that you will find the information in this website to be helpful as you think about applying to graduate school. We encourage each student interested in graduate study to meet with an adviser in the Geography Undergraduate Advising Office as early as Autumn quarter in your junior year, or as soon as possible after the decision is made.
