As part of Magdalen College’s Career Pathways program, the college hosted a faculty panel to educate students about graduate school on Thursday, September 12. The panel, which consisted of Dr. Eric Buck, Dr. Peter Sampo, Dr. Mary Mumbach, Dr. Erik Van Versendaal and Dr. George Harne, first shared their own personal stories of graduate school, then went on to answer practical questions, such as how to decide if you should go on to graduate school and how to keep costs down.
The panel gave students the opportunity to prepare for long-term career and educational goals in a practical way. “I was very impressed by the wisdom and experience the faculty shared with us in the Career Pathways Graduate School Presentation. I learned about the application process and what to expect in grad school. I walked away from the presentation better informed and optimistic about my options for the future,” said Joe Fecteau ‘20.
Through its Career Pathways Program, Magdalen College builds bridges to career and internship opportunities for students, assisting them as they cross these bridges and prepare for a life of human flourishing and faithful service. The program offers presentations and workshops to assist students with career-related skills, as well as one-on-one help with career discernment and internships.
