Some time ago, I began writing a series that I called “Tips for the Th.M.,” in which I offered thoughts on things like whether you should even consider pursuing a postgrad degree, how to find and apply to a good program, how to research and write your thesis, among other things. And, along the way, I’ve had many requests to expand the series so that it covered even more issues of interest to Th.M. and Ph.D. students. So that’s what I’m going to do.
I’ve created a page on How to Survive & Thrive as a Postgrad Student. That page contains all of the posts that I’ve written in my Tips for the Th.M. series, as well as a number of others that relate to succeeding as a postgrad student. Over the next few months, I’m going to add some more posts to the series and revise some of the older posts so that they fit in the series a little more coherently.
If you have any specific issues that you’d like me to write on, let me know in the comments.
