The department makes every effort to provide individual attention and advice tailored to the needs and interests of each graduate student. Personal initiative on the part of the student to take full advantage of the available guidance and to participate in the department's intellectual life is strongly encouraged.
The Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) is the principal contact person who advises graduate students in the planning of their individual courses of study and ascertains that degree requirements are completed in a timely fashion. All first-year and second-year graduate students are required to consult with the DGS at least once a quarter. The department requires that, at the start of each quarter, students who have not yet formed a Doctoral Guidance Committee submit their study lists to the DGS for approval before they register.
