Director of Graduate Studies: Richard Leson (

The Director of Graduate Studies can help regarding requirements and can help inform you as to where you currently stand in terms of completing the MA.

The Director of Graduate Studies will remain your advisor until you choose your thesis or thesis exhibition first reader. The DGS will also remain your advisor concerning credits to complete the MA, but you should consult your first reader for all matters that pertain to your thesis or thesis exhibition.

Students should choose their first readers by the beginning of the second semester. Thesis and thesis exhibition proposals should be passed at least two semesters before the semester the student plans on graduating.
