Are you a senior worried about the job market? Why not stay on campus a bit longer and earn a graduate degree to improve your career opportunities?

Or have you been considering earning a graduate degree from Syracuse University?

If so, the School of Information Studies invites you to an Information Session from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20 in the Katzer Room, 347 Hinds Hall. Pizza will be served.

“We’re hosting this event to let people, especially graduating seniors, know about the career opportunities that alumni of the iSchool’s graduate programs enjoy,” said Sue Corieri, director of enrollment management. “Some students may not be ready to jump into the working world, or they might be worried about finding a job in the current economic climate. We want to present them with an opportunity to earn a very flexible and marketable graduate degree.”

Participants will hear from Senior Associate Dean Robert Heckman who will give an overview of the iSchool, currently ranked No. 1 in information systems among our peers, according to 2010 U.S. News & World Report.

Professors Martha Garcia-Murillo, program director of the M.S. in Telecommunications and Network Management, and Dave Dischiave, program director of the M.S. in Information Management, will outline the key learning outcomes and academic coursework involved in the master’s degree programs, as well as the certificate of advanced study programs.

Information will also be shared about the Upstate IT Scholarship program, a select scholarship that provides 50 percent tuition support for students who intend to live in Upstate New York and work in an IT-related career.

Students from each of the programs will also be on hand to share their perspectives and answer questions. They will also give tours of the facilities and discuss student life within the iSchool.
