Why and How to Apply for a PhD

No one can tell you whether or not you should make the choice to enter a doctoral program after finishing your master’s degree. The future of graduate education and of academia are topics that have been endlessly debated, and—while we recognize that this unfortunately might not be tremendously helpful—the best advice we can offer is that you should put careful consideration into the decision and know as much as possible about what you might be able to expect from grad school and about how getting a doctorate might shape your career.

We hope that the following resources might be helpful as you consider continuing your graduate studies, whether at the Graduate Center or elsewhere.
