It has been brought to our attention that many M.Ed students are confused regarding Ph.D. applications. Specifically, the Writing Sample. Many fear universities prefer one type of research over the other. This could not be further from the truth. Our M.Ed Rep, Sebastian, contacted over 15 universities asking if they had a preference for a thesis over an MRP. Sebastian's findings show that universities generally do not have a preference. Rather, their Admissions Committee generally wants to see your breadth of research skills and practices. With this said, YGSE is planning many workshops in the future to help you navigate your degree. Please watch your inbox for upcoming events to help you chart your pathway.
