In The Latinx Guide to Graduate School, Genevieve Negrón-Gonzales and Magdalena L. Barrera provide prospective and current students with a roadmap for surviving and thriving in advanced degree programs. They document the unwritten rules of graduate education, demystifying and clarifying the requirements for navigating graduate school for students who are often the first in their families to walk that path. Topics include finding the right program, developing a graduate student identity, nurturing relationships, and mapping a career plan. Equal parts how-to guide, personal reflection, and manifesto, this book gives a culturally resonant perspective for the unique Latinx graduate student experience.
