Graduate Course Preference Form

Graduate Course Preference Form 2017-2018
Click choices, Type text, or Cut & Paste into boxes. 


The Program Committee of Graduate English will meet early in the fall term to put together the curriculum for the following year. At that time, the committee reviews your selection of course preferences, including "repeat course" proposals and/or proposals for new courses. Revisions may be requested before new proposals are presented for governance approval to the Graduate Council and the FAS Graduate Curriculum Committee.

Please offer a choice of at least TWO COURSES. The Program Committee tries to provide a wide range of courses, maintaining coverage of the programs' designated fields. While program needs may determine which course is selected, please be sure to rank your preferences clearly in the "Additional Comments" section.

Repeat course proposals: While instructors do not usually teach the same course in two consecutive years, it is fine to propose one or two repeat course proposals from previous years as your stated preferences. The course title and description must match the version that received formal governance approval. A description may be updated by appending an extra paragraph or sentences for inclusion on the department website. The "Course Reading List" and the "Course Method of Evaluation and Course Requirements" can be amended from year to year. Please include the updated versions of these sections in your submission. Courses not taught within the past five years require re-activation and governance approval. Although it is vital for the department to have a vibrant and up-to-date selection of courses, it is expected that instructors will want to repeat courses as their research and thinking on a topic deepens and matures.

New course proposals: The committee welcomes new course proposals. FAS limits the approved course description for new courses to 200 words and the course title to 60 characters including spaces (with a 30-character ROSI short-title). Be sure to keep the official description within the word limit. You can append (and later amend) a more specific second paragraph, if you wish. Include a "Course Reading List" and the "Course Method of Evaluation and Course Requirements" for the committee to review. These sections are not included in the word limit. Course descriptions that give our students insight into critical approach and methodology in addition to writers and texts are especially helpful in ensuring robust enrollments.

Anticipated leaves: If you are planning a full-year leave in 2017-18, please simply fill in your name and check the leave box. If you are planning a half-year leave, you may complete the form to indicate your interest in graduate teaching. While faculty with half-leaves normally are ineligible for graduate teaching during that year, you may be considered if we need extra courses to achieve coverage. Moreover, given that people's leave plans often change over the year, it is useful to have information on file that will allow the Graduate Program to revisit staffing arrangements as needed.
