Advising

The Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) is available to counsel students at all stages of their advancement in the program. First year students are advised by the DGS. Near the end of the first year, students select an advisor in their field, presumably the dissertation director. From this point forward, the advisor advises the student. The primary responsibility for satisfying the requirements of the Graduate School, however, remains with the individual student.
