Graduate Schools on Long Island

A graduate school is by definition, is a school that awards advanced degrees, with the general requirement that students must have earned an undergraduate (bachelors) degree. Graduate Schools are an excellent option for someone who is good at a particular profession, but wants to be better, if not the best. Graduate Schools are good for those kinds of people are set or know for certain what they are going to be specializing in for the rest of their life. Or if you simply want to go more in to depth about whatever it is you are studying just for the sake of obtaining knowledge and learning, this would be good for you. Not to mention that Graduate Programs can secure your future and ensure better paying jobs.

So, which grad school do you go to and why? First you should find out which colleges and universities offer graduate degrees, and then go from there.

Yet, being in the Long Island area, out of the 19 colleges and universities, only 15 or 16 of them are going to have business oriented courses. Still, 15 schools to research and go over is quite a bit. So we narrowed it down to those that have business courses, and graduate programs that go with it in you Long Island area:
  - Adelphi University offers Graduate Programs in Arts and Science, Psychological Studies, Business, Nursing, Education and Social Work
  - C.W. Post Campus, Long Island University offers Graduate Programs in Information and Computer Science, Liberal Arts, Management, Education, Health Professions and Nursing, Visual and Performing Arts
  - Dowling College offers Graduate Programs in Arts and Science, Business, and Education
  - Five Towns College offers Graduate Programs that will earn you your Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts Degrees
  - Hofstra University has a Graduate Program for everything they teach
  - Malloy College offers Graduate Programs in Business, Science, and graduate assistantships
  - Polytechnic University offers Graduate Programs in Computer Science and Engineering-which might we add; that computers and gaming is a fast growing market, and should be taken advantage of if it is offered in your area.
  - St. Joseph's College offers Graduate Programs in MA/Infant Toddler Early Childhood Special Education, MS in Management, Executive MBA , Master of Science Degree with a Major in Nursing, and MA in Literacy and Cognition
  - New York Institute of Technology offers Graduate Programs in Business Administration, (M.B.A.) Clinical Nutrition (M.S.), Communication Arts (M.A.), Computer Science (M.S.), Counseling (M.S.), Education Leadership and Technology (P.D.), Electrical and Computer Engineering (M.S.), Childhood Education (M.S.), Energy Management (M.S.), Environmental Technology (M.S.), Human Relations (M.P.S.) Human Resources Management and Labor Relations (M.S.), Information, Network and Computer Security (M.S.), Instructional Technology (M.S.), Occupational Therapy (M.S.), Physician Assistant (M.S.), Physical Therapy (D.P.T), Urban and Regional Design (M.Arch.)
  - New York College of Health Professions is a Graduate School of Oriental Medicine
  - Stony Brook has a Graduate School with degrees in several various areas of study. Like Hofstra, there is a graduate program for just about whatever you specialize in
  - Touro Law School offers Graduate Programs to get degrees in all areas of law

Out of the several sites that were visited however, Stony Brook University's website excelled above and beyond all the rest. It was easy to use, with step by step processes and easy to understand keywords in big bold letters that took you where you wanted to go. So for everyone who isn't a master at all this college graduate stuff, Stony Brook University in Long Island is highly recommended. If you are taking a law graduate course, out of the few colleges and Universities that offered Law studies, Hofstra and Touro being the main two, Touro seemed to be the better alternative. The reason you should base some of your decision off a website is because if the school is willing to pay money to get a decent understandable website out there as to what they have to offer, they will probably be the same when you attend their school-they will put forth an effort to teach you. Hiring a competent web designer could mean they are competent people.

All in all, what it comes down to is securing your future and making more money. Graduate Programs may be just a name that people that are hiring you see, but that title can sometimes make the world of difference. With getting jobs today, you either have to know someone, or have a lot of college under your belt. When you know someone, that isn't nearly as stable as building a good education-it might get you far in the beginning, but it most likely won't stay that way forever. The knowledge you gain stays with you forever, not to mention it is valid throughout the world. Think about it.
