Graduate Advisor

All aspects of the Department of English MA and PhD programs are administered by the Graduate Advisor. The Advisor is the Chair of the Graduate Committee, which assists with admissions decisions, setting graduate courses, vetting award applications, student funding matters, and other processes related to students’ progress. The Advisor’s responsibilities include consulting with students on program planning, academic expectations, funding applications, and professional development. You may also contact the Graduate Advisor for assistance with navigating policies and requirements (whether of the department or the Faculty of Graduate Studies) and any special circumstances affecting your degree progress.

During the 2020–2021 academic year, the Graduate Advisor and Graduate Committee are working from home. Regular office hours are available via Zoom and by appointment.
