The graduate handbook describes requirements for entry into the graduate program and other important administrative information.
Please note: although your advisor, other members of the faculty, the Director of Graduate Studies and the Director of Graduate Programs of the School of Liberal Arts will advise you, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to ensure that the degree requirements are met. Please read this brochure and the graduate programs catalog carefully, and keep them for future reference. The requirements specified here supersede any different departmental requirements listed elsewhere.
