There are several ways for you to come see our Cambridge campus, talk with faculty and admissions counselors, and learn about the graduate programs we offer.
By visiting campus, you'll be able to talk with students, faculty, and advisors to get a sense of what it's like here, and how our programs can help you meet your academic and career goals. We offer a range of visit options for students interested in our graduate and post-graduate programs — from group open houses and information sessions to one-on-one meetings with our admissions staff or an academic advisor.
At our large group open houses, you can tour the campus, connect with admissions counselors and financial aid representatives, hear from current students and alumni, as well as learn about programs from faculty and academic advisors. Our next graduate open houses take place on Saturday, April 16, 2016.
We hold hour-long group information sessions, both on and off campus, where we informally discuss our programs, the application process, and university resources. A tour is also part of the information session for on-campus programs. Come with any questions you may have about our master's degrees, PhD programs, or certificates.
