Initial Meeting with the Director of Graduate Studies in English (DGSE)

After you have been accepted to the program, you must make an appointment to speak to your faculty advisor, who is always the Director of Graduate Studies in English (DGSE). Try to schedule this meeting via email during the first week of the semester. The Director will help you understand program requirements and help you develop choices of courses and options that will most help meet your goals for the degree. Throughout your time in the program, the DGSE’s office is a resource to help you understand any aspect of your program. Feel free to email the Director anytime, or to drop by office hours as you have questions and concerns.
