Post-undergraduate consideration ideally begins before the end of second year, and in some cases (such as those pursuing medical school) it needs to be considered even earlier. This is so you are informed of any admission requirements (course or otherwise) that must be folded into your undergraduate degree.
This phase of the work begins with browsing potential careers (listed below and via your own internet research) to learn what exists in relevant fields, and then identify what type of education is required for each. Think of it as reaching into the future to get a sense of desirable end goals and reverse engineering to determine short-term objectives.
Carleton's Pathways to Graduation is designed to help guide you along a path to graduation that is right for you. Explore your current phase and let the success pillars guide you toward graduation.
