The Perspectives of Students Undertaking Masters' Degrees by Coursework on Career Development Learning
Walsh, Shari P.; Tucker, Kelly
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n2 p42-47 Win 2011
Master's degree by coursework students have been identified as a "forgotten" cohort by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Careers and Employment service. Traditionally, these students have been included in undergraduate career development activities. Master's degree students are arguably a specialised group due to the advanced learning implicit in many of their degrees. A brief survey was designed to better understand how to assist QUT master's degree students with career development activities. Students were emailed an invitation to complete a brief online survey, asking for their assistance in planning appropriate career development activities for their cohort. Questions included reasons for undertaking a master's degree and preferred topics and times for career development activities. A total of 615 students completed the survey. This brief report presents the results of the survey and highlights suggestions for career development practitioners and services. (Contains 3 tables.)
