Why a Graduate Portfolio?
All graduate candidates seeking degrees in English must complete a Graduate Portfolio as part of the requirements for graduation. The department believes that candidates’ conscious reflection upon their learning can help expand their understanding of how they learn and how particular ways of thinking inform the educational process. One of the goals of the English Department is that candidates develop the ability to interrelate their studies, to put the English curriculum into a perspective relative to their other studies and professional experiences. With this in mind, the English Department has chosen to use student portfolios to assess the extent to which this and other goals are achieved.
