Are you an MA student thinking of applying to PhD programs? Join us for a discussion with Margaret McCurry, a current English PhD student (and graduate of NYU's English MA program), and two professors who have recently run the admissions process for the NYU English PhD program, Prof. Wendy Lee and Prof. Robert Young, moderated by Prof. Jini Kim Watson.
In this discussion, we will cover: the parts of the PhD application (e.g., the statement of purpose, the writing sample, letters of recommendation); what admissions committees look for; and how to choose graduate programs. We will also have time for Q&A.
Please e-mail Jini Kim Watson with any questions.
