Graduate schools attended (programs include: Psychology, Social Sciences, Gerontology, Social Work, Library Sciences, Industrial Organizational, Urban Counseling, Neurolinguistics, Counseling, Genetic Counseling):
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 we provide numerous opportunities to conduct research and engage in experiential learning, which are highly valued by graduate programs. These opportunities, along with the distinct advantages associated with being a very small liberal arts college, prepare our graduates well for graduate programs.
