Higher Ed: Journeys in Education and Graduate School

When does it make sense for an undergraduate student to continue formal education and attend graduate school? Sometimes, it’s an easy call; if someone wants to be a doctor or a lawyer, it’s a necessity. But how does a student know if that’s really what they want to pursue? In this episode of KUT’s podcast Higher Ed, KUT’s Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger talk about what to weigh when deciding about that next step in school. Listen to Ed’s own story about his graduate school experience (wait until you hear what profession he almost pursued instead of math and education) and to catch the new puzzler – it’s all about truth, lies, and hair color.
