Have you thought about going on to graduate study in English? The English Majors’ Association is excited to announce our upcoming event, an advising session for all students interested in that possibility. The Graduate School Advising Panel, will meet from 3-5pm in HG 1010 on Wednesday May 13. There, professors Julia Lupton and Jerry Lee, along with current graduate student Anna Finn, will be holding an open panel to answer the questions of undergraduate students interested in graduate study. Some of the questions and topics that will be discussed include: the process of enrolling and attending graduate school, what to look for in graduate programs, how does graduate work differ from undergraduate work, and why one should go (or should not) to graduate school.
You can ask any questions you have at the event, or, if you can’t make it, send them to us at email@example.com and we’ll ask them for you. A summarized question and answer sheet, will be made available afterwards, on request, so please do send in your questions even if you can’t attend!
Light refreshments will be provided.
Update: Recordings of the session (in three parts) are available. The quality is not great, so be prepared to adjust your volume control as needed.
