Graduate study in the STEM fields includes academic graduate programs like a Master’s or Ph.D. where you’d study a particular subject in depth for the purpose of advancing knowledge, or professional degree programs like medicine, biotechnology, forensic science, ergonomics or information technology which train you for a specific career path. There are also
Professional Science Master’s and Engineering programs which are hybrids of both.
To confirm your interest in a field, to develop the skills and knowledge needed for graduate study, and to prove your abilities to graduate schools, you’ll need to prepare academically and obtain relevant practical experience.
Most graduate school applications occur in the late fall/early winter of the adcademic year before you want to start. You will need to identify programs that match your interests and complete an application. Some steps take time so plan ahead!
