Graduate School

For those students who are headed directly to graduate school, BDIC Careers offers complete personalized graduate school advising to support you. Some areas we can help include crafting your personal statement and time management tips and tools to organize the search. The School of Public Health and Health Sciences offers a graduate school fair open to all majors.

In the Fall semester, BDIC Careers offers a graduate school application seminar to help students prepare.  Additionally, you can always schedule an individual appointment with your career advisor.

Gap Year

A gap year can be a wonderful chance to decompress after undergraduate study, gain real-world experience, help others, and broaden your perspective.  A gap year is different from another type of job because it has a set end date, usually 1-2 years after which time you move on—either to another position or graduate school.
