I gave a webinar today about humanities and social science masters and PhD programs in the US, as part of a series sponsored by the Mellon Mays Fellows Professional Network. I covered the differences between masters and PhD programs, how to select programs, and how to prepare application materials. The slides are available here in PDF format. The presentation might be useful for undergraduate students who are considering further study but are unclear on their options.
I give presentations on similar topics several times a quarter in my role at the Undergraduate Research Center. This was my first time presenting the information as a webinar, though, so please kindly ignore the microphone rustles and unexplained silences where I was trying to figure out what button to press next!
