Graduate School Information

Students often believe that graduate schools are looking for students who have had many courses as an undergraduate in some particular sub-specialty of Psychology or Sociology. Nothing could be further from the truth. Graduate schools want students who have demonstrated their ability to learn, understand, and apply the fundamentals. They want students who think critically, write well, speak confidently, work independently, can design and critique research, etc. Graduate school faculties typically want to be the ones to shape their graduate students in terms of specialty areas and theoretical approaches. Metaphorically speaking, they want high quality clay for that process. At Wilson we emphasize these all-important fundamentals, and together with the distinct advantages of being very small and a college for women, our graduates have a most impressive record of acceptance into graduate programs. Check out graduate schools attended by recent Wilson graduates. Don't forget that Wilson College is ranked 2nd in the country among regional liberal arts institutions for the proportion of graduates who go on to obtain doctoral degrees.
