Off-Campus Sessions

Information Sessions, Small Group Sessions and Graduate Fairs

Each fall, we offer information sessions in cities throughout the United States. These sessions, which are hosted by Admissions representatives and feature local HGSE alumni, include an overview of our degree programs and admissions process, followed by a question-and-answer session. In select cities, we  offer small group sessions which are informal admissions sessions tailored to attendees' specific interests and questions.

HGSE is also represented at graduate fairs across the country. These fairs provide prospective students with an opportunity to connect with an Admissions representative and to begin exploring the graduate programs offered at HGSE.
