  1. Incoming M.A. candidate here. I plan to get a terminal M.A. and not go the Ph.D. path and become a prof, so I was hoping to get practical experience during the semesters (volunteer work, internships, etc. 8-10 hours/week) so I could be in the best position to get a job at graduation. Is this feasible given the rigorous workload of a grad student? I also will hopefully be doing a PT work-study job, as unfortunately, internships in the public sector are unpaid, ugh. At Columbia GSAS I plan to take 9 credits a semester, 12 tops.
  2. Hi, this is my first post on thegradcafe so bear with me. I recently committed to Temple University to start pursuing a PhD in physical chemistry in the fall. I also received a presidential fellowship that means I get an increased stipend and only need to work as a TA or RA for 2.5 out of the 5 years. Therefore, I am not planning to work as a TA my first semester. From what I've found online, Temple suggests you take two 3-credit electives and a 1-credit "Teaching in Higher Ed" course while teaching. Since I don't have to work as a TA, should I take more than that? I'm used to taking a full load of courses and working 3 jobs in undergrad, so I like to be busy. Also, I was looking at course offerings for next semester and it seems like a majority of the classes I could/would like to take are only offered at night. Is this typical for a full-time PhD program? It seemed odd, since you're strongly discouraged from having another job. Lastly, can anyone who has had this kind of schedule tell me how you managed your time? In my first semester, I won't officially be in a group yet, so I won't have my own office. Do you just bounce around between libraries and cafes to work during the day until your classes at night? How much time do you spend on campus? Sorry for all of the questions, I'm just not sure what to anticipate. Thank you!
  3. I'm a PhD student (in Cultural Studies, practice-based), currently self-funded, but about to be partially funded from October (yay!). I've been working full-time since last October because I ran out of money - this meant I had to take a break in studies But I'm back studying again now, working part-time - I have time to read and think again, it's amazing. But it's not as easy as that. The pace of reading and researching is very different to doing my job, where I've been manically trying to show how deserving I was of a permanent part-time position, demonstrating efficiency, speed etc. But now I need to go slowly, read things carefully, flit around between things as I make the connections, go back to read up on certain theorists and then return to the text that mentioned them. I'm trying to set up some systems and a regular weekly routine. Is anyone else trying to get a routine like this set in place, especially around jobs etc? I could really do with some cheering on and being in touch with others in the same position. This PhD business can be quite isolating!
