Events List

The graduate program in English hosts several events each year. Below are a few examples; additional events may vary by degree program and year.

  • Graduate Orientation: Each year the department has a graduate orientation in mid- to late-September. The orientation, which is for both new and returning students, provides general information and updates about graduate studies within the department. Some programs also have separate program orientations to answer more specific questions about their programs and requirements.
  • Graduate Workshops and Colloquia: Each fall and winter, programs and the department sponsor workshops and colloquia for graduate students. Workshops are offered on applying to Ph.D. programs, working in the Community College environment and other pertinent topics.
  • Graduate Research Fair: The Graduate Research Fair is a university-wide conference that features the research of graduate students. It is put on by the EMU Graduate School. The day-long conference has numerous concurrent and poster sessions and is followed by a banquet and awards ceremony. Faculty members nominate students for participation in the Research Fair.
  • Year -End Graduate Celebration: Every April, the department hosts a year-end graduate celebration at which we present the department awards for academic excellence and other recognitions. This is an event where we come together to celebrate our accomplishments for the year and to enjoy one another’s company.
