Graduate School Workshops (September-November)

Each Fall, the Department offers a series of workshops that enable undergraduates to prepare and submit materials for graduate school admission. The initial workshop provides an introduction to the application process. Subsequent workshops focus on different elements of the application process, including letters of introduction, resume/ CVs, writing samples, computer tests (GREs) and letters of reference.

While the workshops are open to all GU students, we especially encourage Sociology and CJ students to take advantage of this opportunity. Even if you do not think you will be applying this Fall, the information and training will help you prepare a working application file for future application.
