Most questions are answered in our Graduate Handbook, available online. This is an important resource: please read it carefully!
You should have received from our administrative assistant for graduate studies a message providing your advisor’s name. If you are unsure, you should be able to see his/her name when you log in to UDSIS. Normally, the first faculty name you see is that of the Director of Graduate Studies, and the second is that of your official academic advisor, who will be a faculty member in your area of specialization. MALLCP students will see a third name, that of their pedagogy advisor.
Your course choices need to be approved by your primary advisor(s) (MALLCP candidates have a second primary advisor, a specialist in pedagogy). It is a good idea to make an appointment with your primary advisor(s) at least once a semester to discuss any concerns and your plan for future semesters. Questions about your pedagogy coursework or your professional goals as a teacher should be addressed to your pedagogy advisor. If your concern is related to a course you are taking, it is best to speak first with the professor teaching that course. If you are a candidate for teaching certification, or you wish to switch to the certification track, you must confer early on with the DLLC Education coordinator. If your concern is related to your work as a TA, please see the instructor who is coordinating the course you are teaching. If you are still at that point unable to obtain the answers you need, speak with the 100-level sequence supervisor. The Director of Graduate Studies should be consulted if you are not able to obtain the answers you need from your advisor(s) and/or your course coordinator.
The first step is to consult with your advisor(s). If they approve your decision, you must formally petition the Director of Graduate Studies to make this change (depending on your previous course choices, it may not be possible after the first year, but check with your advisor). If the Graduate Studies Committee approves your petition, you must see the administrative assistant in charge of graduate studies to file a Change of Status form.
You are permitted to take (for credit or as an auditor) extra-departmental graduate-level courses in fields related to your area of studies (e.g. Linguistics, Education, Women and Gender Studies). However, all course choices (both within and outside the department) must be approved by your advisor(s). The course instructor’s permission may also be required.
The Graduate Handbook states that “Funded graduate students are expected to enroll only in graduate-level courses that count towards the MALLC or MALLCP degree program that they are pursuing in the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures. If a graduate student wishes to take a course unrelated to his/her field or take a course at the undergraduate level, either for credit or as a listener, s/he must have the written approval of the DLLC’s Director of Graduate Studies or the DLLC Department Chairperson before enrolling.”
The first step is to consult with your advisor (or advisors, if you have two) and explain why you wish to take the course (whether you plan to take it for credit or as an auditor). Your advisor(s) must give his/her/their approval. Once you have obtained this approval, you should request permission from the Director of Graduate Studies of the Department before enrolling.
As we hear about conferences that are likely to be of interest to our MA students, we share these calls for papers with all students. You should also speak with your advisor, or the specialist in the area that interests you.
Yes, on a competitive basis. You will need to secure advisor support for your participation, and to prepare a budget. Application and Guidelines
Please note that while the support of the Department Chair is required (in the form of matching funds), these grants are administered by the Graduate Office.
At present, the Department does not have funds to cover such requests. However, students are encouraged to work with Morris library reference specialists to identify grant and scholarship opportunities. The Grant Forward Database may prove useful.
International students are prohibited by visa regulations from taking on any employment at all outside of their work as a teaching assistant during the fall and spring semesters. This includes informal tutoring, unless it is done on a volunteer basis (no payment for services). International students may, however, work in the US up to forty hours a week during the winter and summer sessions, provided that their work is related to their program of study. If this job is on-campus, there is no special paperwork to complete; if, however, the student wishes to work off-campus, s/he must inform the Office for International Students and fill out forms to apply for a CPT (Curricular Practical Training).
Domestic students serving as teaching or graduate assistants must petition the Director of Graduate Studies and the Department Chair for permission to work part-time, and the Dean is the one who makes the final decision. Such part-time work cannot exceed five hours a week and must not interfere with the student’s academic and teaching responsibilities.
