Graduate students acting
Suggestions for preparing for the comprehensive exams, fulfilling language requirements, and approaching research papers are also included in the department's handbook. These suggestions are based on the past experiences of graduate students in the Department, and are recommendations merely, not policy. It is important to remember that while this booklet encompasses a great deal of information, it cannot answer every question. Students are encouraged to approach either their graduate mentor or advisor with more specific inquiries.

Graduate School's Student Handbook
Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the contents of the Graduate School's Handbook issued by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The Department assumes that each student will be responsible for overseeing his or her own progress through the program, and for ensuring that requirements are met in a timely fashion.
