Consider a obtaining a graduate degree in a different field

Consider attending a post-baccalaureate program

If you're considering graduate school but want more time to work on research, one option is completing a post-baccalaureate program. These are programs for recent college graduates that typically last 1-2 years and typically involve working on a well-defined research topic closely with an advisor. A post-bacc can be a good opportunity to boost your resume and gain valuable research experience, and can help you determine if you enjoy research enough to pursue a graduate degree.
