Graduate Advising

All incoming MA students are assigned a temporary faculty adviser upon starting the MA program.  This temporary adviser works with the Director of Graduate Studies to advise Masters students when they enter the MA program until they choose an official advisor. MA students must select their official adviser by at least the first week of the second semester of the program; until then, the student should work with the temporary adviser and the Co-Directors of Graduate Studies to plan a course of study.

The Director of Graduate Studies is also the advisor for the PhD Minor in Gender and Women’s Studies and the Graduate Certificate in Gender and Women’s Studies.
