Josef Korpel School for International Studies here at the University of Denver posted the following on their blog and we thought it was worth a read for any prospective, current, and alumni student of GSSW.
Q: Is the debt worth it?
A: Ultimately, that is your decision and it depends on several factors (career goals, comfort level with loans, options other than graduate school etc.). Graduate school is expensive, and unlike the hard sciences, there are few full rides available. Our graduates have had some success in the past and we certainly hope that continues in the future. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) recently published this on the payoff of a masters degree. What do you think?
