Given the highly individualized nature of the MA and PhD programs, the advising function is critical. Each entering graduate student will be assigned a temporary advisor from the school's graduate faculty. In consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies and the temporary advisor, the first-year student should plan the initial program of study and determine who on the faculty can best serve as permanent academic advisor after the first year.
