Welcome from the Director of Graduate Studies
Most of you will enter our graduate program expecting to take classes, pass exams, and (ultimately) write a dissertation. But being a graduate student is about much more than that. As a graduate student, you will be a full member of the department, which means that you will be invited to take part in our intellectual and social life. We hope that you will not only attend department lectures (as well as lectures and seminars hosted by the Humanities Center), but also participate in the question and answer sessions and discussions afterward.
