Episode #5: Five Strategies for Online Graduate School Life Balance


In this episode of the Public Health Epidemiology Conversations (PHEC) Podcast


Dr. Huntley discusses five actionable tips that online graduate degree students can use to help them balance the busy demands of graduate school and life. What starts out as excitement about starting graduate school can often drift into a silent frustration for many. Trying to juggle school, work, family, and other obligations can be overwhelming. Huntley will share with you some strategies that can help you regain your focus, control your journey, and achieve success.


Although any graduate student may find this information to be helpful, Dr. Huntley specifically targets online graduate students because of the special challenges that online students face. Some of the common challenges include adjusting to the online environment, feelings of isolation that can be self-defeating, adapting to the fast pace of the coursework along with the high demands of life in general, and the need to develop a strong system that will help you stay on track and succeed.
