The 2009 ASHS Annual Conference

Student Forum On Graduate School: The What, Why, and How!

The objective of this workshop is to expose undergraduate students to graduate school options in horticulture and provide a forum for students to ask questions and get answers from a panel of current graduate students and faculty in horticulture.
Students working on an undergraduate degree in horticulture are often only vaguely aware of graduate school, what it is, why pursue an advanced degree, and how to go about it. Traditional job fairs focus on careers in allied industries but don’t often offer an open forum for students to ask questions about graduate school or careers requiring an advanced degree. Current graduate students and faculty will present their perspective on graduate school. Following the presentations, there will be a panel discussion to answer questions from the attending students. This workshop will help students learn about graduate school and career options requiring advanced degrees.
