Graduate Course Survey: Your responses needed and appreciated!
Please respond by Monday, November 14
Every fall, our faculty begin the process of planning course offerings for the next year; and they would like to get a sense of what graduate students are interested in seeing offered. This is invaluable input from both MA and PhD students, whether you are currently in or are exiting coursework. So, we appreciate a response from as many people as possible–and thank you so much for your time in contributing to academic course offerings in our program. https://goo.gl/forms/lIUO4uIxRQc5PzX03
