How To Select Your Graduate Advisors
WORKING WITH FACULTY MENTORS
Two faculty mentors typically advise each student throughout the year and provide feedback on all aspects of the student's work on the M.A. essay. As a rule, these mentors come from the areas aligned with the student's theoretical and practical interests as well as working languages. To identify potential mentors, we encourage the accepted and prospective students to consider faculty affiliated with the Program and also faculty in respective area studies departments and English. Occasionally, mentors may come from such departments and programs as Film & Media Studies or Philosophy. Identifying the potential mentors during the summer before the start of the program is strongly advisable.
