We offer funded summer research opportunities, as well as numerous ways during the year to collaborate with faculty on research. The department also offers travel support to present at conferences.
    • Exceptional graduate student mentoring is a hallmark of our program. We consider students to be colleagues and partners, and our graduate student community is built on support, not competition.
    • We offer multiple emphasis areas, but also offer enough flexibility so students benefit from our diverse faculty and broad range of courses, including those in cognate disciplines such as history, philosophy, and gender, race and identity studies (where you can earn a graduate certificate while completing your degree).
