We live in interesting times in the world of higher education. Access to graduate education has expanded exponentially with the advent of the Internet, creating opportunities to pursue advanced degrees that previously could not be imagined. With the availability of degree programs offered through online delivery systems, adults who have “day jobs” can now attend classes offered in asynchronous learning environments that optimize flexible use of time while offering the convenience of anytime, anyplace course participation. Figuring out how this different paradigm of learning will “fit” the needs of prospective students, as well as how to embark on a journey of graduate education, is the focus of Jeff Green’s insightful, focused, and highly practical text. By titling his book Graduate Savvy, Dr. Green underscores the need to know and understand what graduate online education is all about. “Savvy” refers to being able to grasp or understand, and when applied to online graduate school, highlights a perspective that is especially appealing to adults who are returning to the education arena. Through the well-crafted sequence of book sections and chapters, the text provides guidance and hands-on advice about how to successfully engage with the graduate education process. At each step along the degree completion pathway, readers will become savvy in the ways of online learning from prepping for each upcoming class to writing in an academic voice to moving through the capstone stages of the doctoral program: The comprehensive examination and the dissertation.
