Organization Development and Leadership
Most new graduate school students are concerned about the writing portion in the Organization Development and Leadership program.
When I first began my online graduate program, I was surprised to learn just how much diversity existed among my classmate’s backgrounds.
The residency is a whirlwind experience that should challenge you to think outside of your comfort zone. I know that sounds scary, but believe me, it’s not that bad. You’ll be in a room full of people that have only “met” online before, but never had the chance to see one another face-to-face. It’s a little bit like meeting for a first date after talking with someone on social media for months. Awkward! That’s why I can’t stress enough that you should push past the discomfort that you might face and see what’s around the next conversation, the next question, the next feedback session. You will be better for it.
Students enrolled in SJU’s Master’s in Organization Development and Leadership (MODL) program recently had the opportunity to hear from some senior consultants with the Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group as they discussed the importance of inclusivity.
Pursuing a graduate level degree online can be a very different experience for most students when compared to their undergraduate studies. Rather than reminisce about your all night study sessions in the college library, there are more accurate ways to determine how you will do as an online graduate student.
It is daunting returning to school as an adult especially when navigating the relatively-new academic frontier of online education. Although textbooks and a syllabus may still be familiar, compressing traditional semesters into eight-week segments might be a new obstacle that may trip up newcomers.
You can feel excited or terrified—or a little of both—upon taking the final steps to embark on earning a graduate degree. Starting an online school experience is very different from moving into a dorm or entering a classroom, and all of these experiences can be overwhelming in their own way.
