Journey Towards a Doctorate: For Working Professionals

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
For some librarians, obtaining a doctorate is a dream they wish could come true. It can be difficult enough to work out the logistics of balancing work and home obligations, without adding school into the mix. The presenter will discuss her journey of making the dream of obtaining a doctorate a reality. By careful examination of institutions, programs, and tuition costs, the presenter applied and matriculated into a program that best fit her needs. This program will allow attendees the opportunity to think outside the box, and realize additional options to receiving a doctorate besides taking the PhD route.
