The Graduate Students in English (GSE), a Registered Student Organization, fosters professional, academic, and social opportunities for students in the English Department’s M.A., M.F.A., and Ph.D. programs. Everyone in the English graduate program is automatically a part of the GSE. Under the direction of a faculty advisor, the GSE offers regular events designed to connect graduate students with a scholarly and professional community outside of the classroom as students work toward the completion of their degree programs. The GSE also works to open communication between graduate students and faculty to ensure that all parties stay informed and work together for the success of the department as a whole.  During the fall semester, the GSE hosts a variety of degree-specific events for M.A., M.F.A., and Ph.D. students.  In the spring, the GSE hosts its annual student conference and offers a panel discussion on entering the academic and non-academic job markets.
