HUNTINGTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Marshall University will welcome prospective graduate students at the Herd Pathway and Grad Studies Expo on its Huntington campus on Tuesday, Feb. 6.
According to Marshall University, students considering postgraduate education will have the opportunity to meet with faculty and advisors, connect with current students, and learn more about programs that can help them achieve their professional goals.
As the university’s April 27 commencement date approaches, the expo offers students an opportunity to think about their next step after graduation.
“Now is the perfect time to start planning,” said Carl Mummert, assistant provost for graduate studies.
“You have time to reach out to programs to learn more about what they offer and about their application requirements. Some programs have application deadlines during the spring that you want to pay attention to. And—if you need to take the GRE or any requirements before you apply, you have time.”
Working professionals who may be looking for ways to advance their careers are also welcome.
“A graduate degree can open new career opportunities and promotion opportunities at your current employer,” said Mummert. “Marshall has many options for online and part-time degrees that have flexibility for nontraditional students.”
Marshall currently offers over 60 graduate degrees and over 30 graduate certificate programs in online and in-person class formats.
The expo will be held in the Don Morris Room in the Memorial Student Center from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
Refreshments will be served.
