The Latinx Guide to Graduate School

Genevieve Negrón-Gonzales, Ph.D., associate professor, University of San Francisco, School of Education and Magdalena L. Barrera, Ph.D., vice provost for Faculty Success, Office of the Provost, and professor of Chicana and Chicano Studies, San José State University, provide prospective and current Latinx graduate students in the humanities and social science fields with a road map for surviving and thriving in advanced degree programs. They clearly document the unwritten rules of graduate education that impact Latinx students, demystifying and clarifying the essential requirements for navigating graduate school that Latinx students may not know because they are often the first in their families to walk that path. Topics include identifying the purpose of graduate research; finding the right program; putting together a strong application and developing a graduate student identity; cultivating professional and personal relationships; and mapping out a postgraduate school career. Their book also includes resources for undocumented students. Equal parts how-to guide, personal reflection, manifesto and academic musing, this book gives a culturally resonant perspective that speaks to the unique Latinx graduate student experience.
