Subject: path(s) to graduate degrees
Most enter grad school directly from a Bachelor's degree. Today I
participated in a Ph. D. final oral exam (thesis defense) in a STEM area.
The student mentioned working for a couple of years as a lab tech before
going on to grad work in the same area.
I discussed with the rest of the grad committee my experience with our
engineering "co-op" program and internships in many fields - almost all (or
all?) STEM. The committee chair mentioned that her grad students who
entered after working for a while tended to do better.
How common are co-op/internship programs in DH fields? Is this something
which should be fostered?
P.S. My son did a couple of these in engineering - and those experiences
greatly helped in setting him on a terrific career path.
