Overview

Negotiating Graduate School, Second Edition provides realistic answers to the questions and concerns most often raised by students in graduate school. Incorporating three decades of personal experience working with master's and doctoral candidates, Rossman addresses such critical issues as the research proposal, forming a committee, preparing for comprehensive written and oral exams, avoiding emotional letdowns, defending the thesis or dissertation, and publishing a dissertation. In addition to addressing the needs of graduate students in traditional settings, this revised edition includes new information responding to the concerns of graduate students in online or distance education programs. In addition, it contains many new URLs and reflects the influence of the Internet on graduate education.
