Merriam-Webster defines the word “graduate” as follows:
- to pass from one stage of experience, proficiency, or prestige to a usually higher one
- to change gradually
The Friends University definition of graduate school is that it is not a continuation of your college career so much as the beginning of your professional life. The learning is different at the graduate level. It requires collaboration, the ability to self-regulate and the capacity to self-reflect. It is a time to truly absorb the area of study you’ve chosen. By studying one course at a time, the exposure to new experiences and to differences within a collaborative, safe learning environment makes for a richer and more satisfying learning experience.
The primary instrument of change is the individual. Graduate education provides the ability to navigate an ever-changing world.
