HELPFUL HINTS FOR PHD STUDENTS
Doctoral Colloquium (aka Wagner Seminar)
Doctoral students only register for the colloquium for credit for two semesters.
However, all doctoral students are expected to attend the colloquium regularly each year unless they have an unavoidable conflict. You should not register for classes during this time without receiving approval from your adviser. Several times each semester, a prominent researcher presents current work on pressing social issues. The presenters represent a range of disciplines and methodological approaches, and are affiliated with institutions from around the country. The colloquium offers faculty and doctoral students a chance to see emerging work and discuss and debate different approaches to research. You can read more about the colloquium here.
Student Mailboxes at Puck
All Wagner students will be provided with a mailbox at the Puck Building (295 Lafayette St). This is where Wagner faculty, administration and student representatives may drop important information on classes, program announcements and events at the school.
Course Syllabi and Evaluations
Every semester the school posts course syllabi and instructor evaluation information on our website. The syllabi information is accessible by the general public and evaluations are restricted to current students (with login and password). This information serves as a valuable resource when selecting courses.
