Upon admission to the Environmental Humanities Graduate Program, the Director is assigned as the temporary advisor who mentors students for the first fall and spring semesters. By May 1, students should have at least 2/3 of their supervisory committee set including the chair who then becomes the student's advisor.
Students are strongly advised to consult the key timelime to plan and monitor their progress in the Program. With details on major touchstones and a coursework outline, this plan provides the roadmap for students to graduate in two years.
The Program faculty reviews the progress of each graduate student at the end of each spring semester. The purpose of the review is to assess the overall progress of each student in the program, and to identify means by which the faculty can assist each student to achieve success in the Program.
Prior to the review, each student is responsible to show he or she is in good standing in the Program. The student should meet with his or her advisor to discuss particular concerns or areas of difficulty, and to provide information that can be usefully shared with the faculty at large during the review session.
