Tips To Help You Through Grad School
Going into a graduate program, especially an online one, it is possible to focus just on homework and ignore time for yourself, friends, and family.
Going in to the internship, the main thought may be to get experience and hours. However, it is also a great opportunity to network. Using the field work placement for networking makes it a more joyful and fulfilling experience.
Pursuing a Master’s degree is great. As wonderful and challenging as it can be, it can also be exhausting without having support from others. As a grad student, you need a support system. In social work, we focus on the clients’ social support system.
You may be wondering how difficult a Master’s Degree might be or what kind of things you should expect. A Master’s Degree can be burdensome but it can be accomplished if you are determined enough to finish once you start. You may feel that 18 months or 2 years is a long time.
