Applying to Graduate School: Law, Language & Leadership

As the Fall term presses on, many members of the student body at Stetson have the prospect of graduate school on their minds. The Writing Center recognizes that the application process is fraught with confusion and anxiety. And in an effort to model sponsorship and demystify the process, we are thrilled to offer a panel centered on applying to graduate programs in the humanities and social sciences, with a focus on Law, English and Writing Studies, and Educational Leadership.

The panel will feature some of Stetson’s own established members in these disciplines and fields, and they’ll share their unique insights and lived experiences with navigating the application process. Topics covered will include gathering materials, timing, and essential considerations for high-stakes genres like CVs and Personal Statements. Conversation will be based on questions solicited from the Writing Center staff, and there will be time allocated for attendees to ask any remaining questions they have.

Our panelists are:

Carmen B. Johnson (JD, Executive Officer for Diversity, Collaboration and Inclusion)

Elizabeth Connor (MA, Assistant Director of the Office of Career and Professional Development)

Dr. Leigh Ann Dunning (PhD, Director of the Writing Center and Assistant Director of the Writing Program)

Dr. David T. Johnson (PhD, Brown Visiting Teacher-Scholar in Developmental Writing and Writing Center Studies and Assistant Director of the Writing Center.)

The panel will be held virtually on Monday, Sept. 27, from 3:45-4:45 p.m. For a link to the event, contact the Writing Center at [email protected]
