Preparing for English Graduate Studies

The transition from undergraduate to graduate study presents many challenges and requires careful planning and substantial time and effort. This site is designed to direct you to some resources that may help you with this complex but rewarding decision process. The most important investigations you will perform, however, will be through conversations with faculty, with current and former graduate students, and with others who serve as your advisers and mentors.
