Graduate School - Locating Programs
How to Locate Specific Programs
Use your resources on campus by talking to your advisor and professors in your area of interest. Talking with recent graduates and alumni who pursued a similar field is also helpful.
Read academic journals that are in your field of interests; who is writing the articles that peak your interest, which Universities are they from?
Interview people working in the field you hope to be in someday; ask where they went to school, what University would they recommend and why.
Check the Career Resource Library and the Peterson's Guides to find out which schools have what programs, also check the published national ratings to find which schools are considered top in the field.
Attend Grad School Fairs and the CMU Career EXPO to talk to a recruiter personally.
