Recent Graduate Publications

Check out our graduate
awards and achievements.

It is routine for faculty to co-author with students, and nearly every graduate leaves our program with both published research and direct classroom teaching experience. In fact, within a few years in our program, most of our graduate students have the full range of experiences that our faculty have teaching, conducting research, presenting at conferences, submitting work for publication, and serving on the committees that shape our department’s future.
