Spring 2018

Cultural Analysis and Theory 

The Department of Cultural Analysis and Theory, which is part of the College of Arts and Sciences, offers the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Cultural Analysis & Theory, with tracks in Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies and Women's & Gender Studies as well as advanced graduate certificates in Cultural Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies.

All students enrolled in the Graduate School in any program, whether in residence or absentia, must register each fall and spring for at least one graduate credit until all degree requirements have been met. A student is not considered to have registered until enrollment is posted on the University system, SOLAR, and arrangements regarding tuition and fees have been made with the Bursar’s Office. Students who hold a TA, GA, RA, fellowship, or tuition scholarship must be registered as full-time students by the fifteenth day of classes each semester. Students failing to register before the first day of classes or before late registration begins may still register during the first 15 days of the semester, but will be charged a late fee of $40. Students who have not been granted an official Leave of Absence by the Dean of the Graduate School and have not yet registered will be considered to have withdrawn from the University. Students are responsible for making sure they are registered on time. Programs or individual faculty members do not have authority to waive these rules.
