HGSA presents Comps Workshop

Friday, 8 October 2010
1:30-3:30 PM
3339 Faculty/Administration Building

Preparing for Your Toughest Year in Graduate School

Between Course Work and a Dissertation comes the Comprehensive Exams, COMPS. Selecting one's committee, determining the reading lists, and preparing for the questions, are not an easy process. Some have described preparing for and taking the written and oral exams as the hardest thing they've ever been through in Academia.

The workshop is intended for both Ph.D. and Masters students. WSU History Department faculty, senior graduate students, and Gayle McCreedy (Administrative Officer) will be on hand to talk about the process and to provide survival tips.
