IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – LAS Graduate Conference

We are excited to invite you to two very important events geared around graduate completion of dissertation/thesis projects. MALS/IDS students have actively participated in these conferences, and have characterized their take-away experiences as extremely helpful, important, and pivotal in their thesis/dissertation completion processes.

We strongly encourage ALL MALS/IDS students to attend, regardless of your program progress or completion option. These two conferences provide excellent resources and presentation experience for all interdisciplinary students. In addition to  shaping your own thesis/dissertation or other completion option, learn what your academic colleagues are working on and help cheer on their presentations. Your participation is needed as presenters and audience members, and the time spent will be well worthwhile.
