Thinking of applying to a US university, but not sure where to start? It can be a tough nut to crack for many reasons. Example: Where many countries offer free graduate education, like those in the EU, that is not the case in the US. But more on funding later.
There are 2 major types of degree programs in the U.S.
1. Masters Programs: These include 1-3 years of coursework. They often culminate in a capstone, like a project with a client or writing a thesis.
There are two major pathways to a masters.
🔘Some programs offer a terminal master, including many professional programs
🔘Others offer a masters on the way to a PhD
Professional programs are more $$ than other types of masters. It also seems like masters are becoming more and more common on the way to the Phd.
2. PhD Programs: It takes on average between 6-10 years to finish a US doctorate. The first few years are dedicated to coursework and the remaining years to completing exams and a major research project.
One key difference between a masters and PhD program is the DISSERTATION. This is a major writing project in which a PhD candidate demonstrates their knowledge of their field and their ability to create new knowledge through original research and analysis.
But, this does vary by field.
So how does one apply for said graduate programs?
🔘 Most applications are web-based and submitted through interfaces like Interfolio.
🔘 Check out individual department’s webpages to find their links
🔘 Contact the student affairs officer for more information.
Keep an eye out for my next post, which will discuss funding $$$
Shout out to @_fernandzilla_ for suggesting the topic.

I conducted a MasterClass for prospective masters degree students recently, and it was an amazing time (albeit adrenaline-charged with zero sleep) that I would not exchange for anything 🙌🏻!
Preparing a class for masters students is very different from a talk, because I wanted to ensure that it was extremely relevant to current affairs, had intellectual content to satisfy qualified professionals seeking higher education, was interesting for classroom debate, and highly engaging (as befitting the SMU teaching pedagogy).
I am so touched by the people who came up to me to say lovely things after the session, and I also received some written socme/emails: here are 2 very sweet messages, 1 of which was very humbling when I saw it was from a 44-year-old experienced professional saying thank you.
I didn’t sleep at all the night before as I decided to change the entire case study to an even better one, and I ended up going nearly 48 hours without sleep, but it was really worthwhile for the benefits it brought to the class 😊.
Always grateful to the Lord for His opportunities to do and share more, and thank you SMU for this invite🙏🏻✨!
I love giving the children practical opportunities! Today we used the conkers that we have been collecting to subtract! The children started with 10/15/20 conkers and rolled a dice to determine how many they would have to take away! They loved writing down the number sentences and working out the answers! 😄❤️👏 •
don’t know where it is? it’s in the building straight ahead as you exit the library! join us for our weekly club meeting every thursday at 3:30!

Parent-Teacher conferences with my bestie ❤️ I thought I’d better dress up! Parents are always so shocked when they see how young their child’s teacher is. I promise I still work just as hard. I’m just a little more energetic and spunky!
Fun fact: I walked into Taylor’s room and we were wearing the same blazer, black pants, and red shirt (Red Ribbon Week— hugs not drugs). Same name, same clothes right? Hahaha. Great minds think alike!
I decided to change, so we weren’t identical! Buuuuut, it’ll be a long day today! Well be here from 8-6. 🤪 We got this!

It may not be the grandest room transformation ever, but my sophomores loved the little corner of my classroom that I transformed into a jungle!
We start our first novel next week, and I wanted to set the mood and get my students excited to read Lord of the Flies.
I used some leaves and vine I found on Amazon (last year, saved again for this year), and stapled them to the walls. The vine actually comes in quite handy when we try to make our way through the thick creepers.
As we begin our novel study, we are reading it survivor style. My students will be competing in teams as they make their way through the novel and complete a series of team challenges.
I always look forward to reading this novel with my students, and I really hope that my genuine enthusiasm shows!
You can check out my stories for the before and after picture. In my stories, I’m also linking a free Lord of the Flies intro activity and a post about how I run the challenges in my classroom!
It’s the little things that really get the kids interested in learning. 💗I love this idea from @learningwithmisslagrow and know that something as simple as straws got her kids jazzed about angles. Cheap, easy, and I bet her students were totally engaged- there’s just something about cutting a plastic straw that feels so satisfying, am I right or completely crazy? 😂 adding straws to my next Target run. 🛒
