This one-credit course is designed to help introduce new graduate students in English to graduate study in general and in our department in particular, to the concrete procedures and long-term goals involved in successfully negotiating their programs of study, and to the range of options that a graduate student in English might have.  We will meet a bit more often than biweekly, assisted by Gregory Colon Semenza’s Graduate Study for the 21st Century and other readings.  In addition to attending all class meetings, there will be a number of additional requirements, all designed to expose you to the intellectual life of the department, the discipline, and the profession.
