Alternatives to graduate school

These articles present some of the alternatives (and even alternative soft approaches) to graduate school. You shouldn't rush into a graduate education—especially if one of these alternatives suits your needs better. Topics covered include certification (both within and independent of grad school), professional development workshops and community courses, and taking individual college courses to deepen your knowledge and broaden your skill set.
