We welcome visits to the department from prospective students!
In the fall term, a visit by prospective applicants typically involves individual conversations with the director of graduate studies and select graduate students. Visitors might also be able to sit in on graduate seminars or our Department’s Friday Colloquium, if schedules and the curriculum permit it. To schedule a fall visit, please contact the director of graduate studies, Athena Vrettos, at firstname.lastname@example.org with your desired date and time of visit, your primary areas of interest within English studies, and the degree program to which you anticipate applying (MA or PhD).
In the spring term, the English Graduate Student Association hosts admitted students for a dedicated program of events. Invitations to these events are extended at the point offers are made.
We are not able to accommodate visits during the period in which applications are under consideration.
