The Princeton Graduate School Open House, hosted by the Office of Academic Affairs & Diversity, is designed for prospective graduate students to gather information on graduate education at Princeton University. Prospective students visit Princeton’s campus to participate in:
- an information workshop designed and facilitated by Karen Jackson-Weaver, associate dean for Academic Affairs and Diversity
- a graduate student panel
- a select faculty panel (subject to availability of faculty);
- a customized campus tour for prospective graduate students.
This event is open to any interested students however, we highly encourage women with an interest in engineering and the sciences and historically underrepresented groups (which include African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans) to attend given the disparity in graduate education across the country.
When & Where
Princeton University - The Graduate School
Princeton University offers advanced degrees spanning the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. Doctoral education available in all disciplines emphasizes original and independent scholarship, while master's degree programs in architecture, engineering, finance, public affairs and public policy prepare candidates for careers in public life and professional practice. These programs share a number of distinctive and desirable features: a high level of engagement between distinguished faculty and outstanding students, a campus environment that fosters a community of scholars, a depth of financial support that allows concentration on academics, and degree programs with demonstrated success in educating graduates for careers in academia, government, and the non-profit and corporate sectors. Complementing and enriching these degree-granting programs are a wide range of interdisciplinary units that promote intellectual activities and research across departmental and divisional boundaries.
