The Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) and faculty members from your undergraduate courses are great resources to help you research graduate schools.  The CCPD's Career Coaches can help you figure out what criteria to search for, where to look, and how to complete the application process.  Faculty members can provide valuable information on schools and programs in their subject areas.  Seeking guidance from faculty members can also lay the foundation for you to ask to participate in research opportunities and to ask for recommendation letters.

The CCPD also has a few online resources that may help guide your search:

  • is an online tool that provides information on graduate schools and programs, scholarships and financial aid, and test preparation and practice.
  • The U.S. News' Colleges and Careers Center provides school rankings, forums with online advisers ready to answer your questions, financial aid guides, reports on campus life, and news from college papers around the country.
  • is an online directory of graduate programs.
  • is a job vacancy bulletin that includes listings for 6 sub-categories in the liberal arts, arts, and humanities.
