Research Programs

Once you decide that graduate school is right for you, you’ll want to research programs that match your interests and fit your needs. Your undergraduate major does not dictate which graduate programs you can pursue. Focus your interests. Talk to professionals and research various programs.

Ways to Research Programs

  • Connect with the schools that interest you, requesting information to inform your decision
  • Visit schools that are high on your list
  • Attend graduate fairs and forums
  • Talk with current graduate Students or alumni
  • Speak with WPI faculty about your interests and priorities and ask for advice
  • Contact WPI Pre-Law Advisor Professor Kent Rissmiller, or WPI Pre-Health (pre-med, pre-dental, pre-vet) Advisor Aleshia Carlsen-Bryan.

After researching your options, the next step is to decide where to apply. Here are some factors to consider when evaluating programs:

  • Reputation of faculty 
  • Quality of the program  
  • Depth and breadth of curriculum
  • Program requirements
  • Research, laboratories, library, and computer facilities
  • Availability of fellowships, assistantships, scholarships and financial aid 
  • Geographic location  
  • Internships or clinical experience  
  • Demographics of the student body 
  • Types of positions and salaries of recent graduates
