There are many reasons to consider pursuing advanced education in graduate school including:

  • A desire to specialize in a subject of personal or professional interest
  • A requirement of a profession (e.g., college-level teaching, medical fields, etc.)
  • To advance in a current career
  • To transition to a new career field
  • To increase marketability


Baldwin Wallace Career Services assists students in all stages of the graduate school process. BW offers graduate school workshops where students learn about choosing a program, entrance exams, funding and the admission process.

Additionally, career advisors assist with resume reviews and critique personal statements/essays. 


Career Services hosts an annual graduate school fair each fall. Typically, over 40 institutions, both in-state and out-of-state, are in attendance, with recruiters representing 150+ programs. This is a great opportunity for current students and alumni to meet recruiters, learn about programs and ask for advice.

Through a collaboration with Kaplan, BW offers free preparation for graduate school entrance exams. This is an opportunity for students to take online practice exams, learn test-taking strategies and obtain test results.
