MTSU College of Graduate Studies is continuing a strategy of pursuing potential students for advanced degrees right here on campus.
Graduate Studies is partnering with the College of Basic and Applied Sciences to host a recruitment session from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, in the Science Building’s Liz and Creighton Rhea Atrium.
CBAS departments and graduate programs will have representatives available to answer questions about their doctoral and master’s degree programs, while College of Graduate Studies representatives will be there to answer questions about graduate school cost, applications, funding and assistantships.
Dr. David Butler, dean of the College of Graduate Studies and vice provost for research, said the information sessions help make undergraduate students, especially juniors and seniors at MTSU, aware that graduate school is an option after graduation.
Butler said because MTSU attracts a large number of first generation college students, many may not be aware of the opportunities available for advanced degrees.
The session is open to the public. A campus parking map is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUParking. Off-campus visitors attending the session can obtain a special one-day permit at www.mtsu.edu/parking/visit.php.
