New Policy for Comprehensive Exam Commitees
Starting with exams in May 2010, the English Department will be following BSU requirements for comprehensive exam committees and dissertation committees as found in the Graduate Handbook. Our committees are now required to include a member-at-large from another department. The member-at-large should see your reading list, and they must be included in any discussions about exam questions that your other committee members have. They may choose to read the written exam questions, but they are required to attend your oral exam vote. For additional details on this new policy, please read the attached document file below.

GSAB Book Sale a Smashing Success
Thanks to the efforts of staff, faculty, and students of the Department of English, the GSAB Book Sale raised $630 for our graduate student travel grant fund. We appreciate everyone who donated books or money, worked the sale, or bought books from us. We are also grateful to Sharon, Jama, and Shawna for helping us with all the logistics of storing books, promoting the event, ordering tables, depositing the money...all the details! We couldn't have done it without all of you! We'll most likely hold a similar event next semester, so let us know if you have books to donate. The grad students don't have an official storage space, but we have been doing our best to collect items in our offices and the grad lounge.
