HCPS Upcoming Events: Ins and Outs of Applying to Graduate School, Academic and Professional School Panel, Statement of Purpose

Published: October 14, 2016

Dear Bruins,

The academic year is well underway, which means many of you have already begun to think about their options post-UCLA.

Do you plan on applying for graduate school? Are you currently working on your statement of purpose? Want to more about what it takes to get into a graduate program? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the next three events in the Humanities Career Panel Series were designed for you!

We’d like to highlight the next three events in the series, starting with The Ins & Outs of Applying to Grad School, on November 2nd at 4pm. This is a discussion lead by Anne De La Cruz (Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Admissions at the UCLA Graduate Division). It help students understand the graduate school application process, including researching graduate programs, understanding the admissions process, and networking with individuals at target institutions. The workshop will include tips and best practices for the statement of purpose, letters of recommendation, interview preparation, and other admissions-related topics. RSVP today to reserve your seat for this event! Space is limited!

Next will be the Academic & Professional School Panel on Wednesday, November 9th at 4pm. This will be a great opportunity for students who are planning on continuing their education after graduation.  At this panel, we will have representatives (including faculty who have served on admissions committees and an Admissions Officer from the UCLA School of Law) and those “in-the-know” share their knowledge about graduate/professional schools and give some insight on how to better your chances of getting in, and what kinds of opportunities await after graduation. RSVP will be available soon via our website (www.humanities.ucla.edu/hcps).

Finally, the Statement of Purpose Workshop on Wednesday, November 16h at 4pm.  During the workshop, students will have the opportunity to meet one on one with current graduate students who will provide feedback on their statements of purpose and graduate school application coaching. Please note that space is very limited. RSVP will be available soon via our website (www.humanities.ucla.edu/hcps).

Best regards,
The Humanities Career Panel Series Committee
