Graduate Student Resources: Family Science

Starting a new graduate program is exciting, but it can also feel overwhelming if you don't have the information you need. To make the journey as smooth as possible, we have compiled a list of resources to assist you as you work toward your degree. They range from degree requirement checklists and advice on choosing a mentor to tips on how to complete your dissertation, locate funding opportunities, and prepare for job interviews. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at fmsc@umd.edu.

You may also visit the SPH Graduate Student Resources page and the UMD Graduate School website for more resources.
