Advising and Program Planning
All graduate students should formulate their academic plans, long-term and semester-by-semester, in consultation with their faculty advisor. The Director of Graduate Study is faculty advisor for first year students. However, by the end of the second semester of study, each student should choose a faculty advisor who is in the area of her or his primary interest.
Students are encouraged to seek advice and information about any aspect of their program and work from any relevant faculty member as their studies continue.
