Resources for Current Graduate Students

Many common graduate student questions are answered in the Department’s Graduate Student Handbook, updated at least once each year. 


Advising and Mentoring Resources

Graduate students meeting with their advisers or advisory committees may also wish to make use of GSAS guidance on advising and mentoring, including the “Guide to Advising Processes for Faculty and Students” booklet. In addition, the Anthropology Department has put together subfield-specific, year-by-year guidance that can serve as a quick reference to the policies described in the Graduate Student Handbook.
