Graduate Visit Option Graduate Open House Connecting with Coordinators

Offered twice a year, Graduate Open Houses bring together all of our graduate program coordinators, giving you the chance to ask in-depth questions about curriculum, pedagogy, research opportunities and more. Because all programs are represented, you have a unique chance to identify which program specifically meets your needs. Current students also attend, giving you the chance to ask about work-life balance and how professors engage with students. Offered October 16, 2019 & March 25, 2020.
