Graduate and Professional School Planning
Are you a current undergraduate student, considering graduate school or professional school when you complete your degree? Or do you have some work experience, and want to advance your career with a graduate degree?
Many Caldwell students and graduates enroll in graduate programs at Caldwell University. You can continue your studies at Caldwell in many fields, including accounting, applied behavior analysis, art therapy, business, clinical mental health counseling, education, nursing and school counseling. There are opportunities to start working on your degree as an undergraduate, through combined BA/MA and BS/MS or BS/MBA programs. Visit the Graduate Admissions website or stop by their office in the Newman Center for more information.
Considering a career in health, medical or science professions? Dr. William Velhagen, Associate Dean of the School of Natural Sciences at Caldwell University, serves as the pre-professional advisor for science students. Career Planning has worked with the School of Natural Sciences to host Health Professions Fairs, and in Fall 2020, many programs set up virtual presentations for CU students.
Dr. Domenic Maffei, Chair of the Department of History and Political Science and the Department of Modern Languages, serves as the University’s pre-law advisor. Contact Dr. Maffei to learn about related workshops, the pre-law minor and to begin planning a timeline for law school testing and applications.
