We strongly encourage you to take a proactive role in career exploration through Career Development’s services early in your DSU experience.

Graduate School Resources

If you are looking to continue your education beyond DSU, graduate school should be considered. Meeting with an advisor in Career Development or in your major department is the best way to start your search for a graduate or professional program. Together, we can discuss your options and develop a plan for completing the application process. In Career Development, we offer individual graduate school advising and critiques of personal statements and application essays.
