Graduate Student Annual Review

Graduate students are ranked every year with respect to awarding departmental assistantships according to the following four criteria:

  1. Progress in the program
  2. Grade point ratio
  3. Teaching/research assistant evaluation
  4. Professional activity (research and teaching)

These annual evaluations:

  • Measure progress and guides conversations between graduate students and their mentors
  • Collect information about performance in the program
  • Provide information to the Sociology Department to distribute assistantships
  • Guide committees to nominate students for fellowships
  • Supply students with letters of guaranteed funding an overview of their progress

This overview of the Graduate Student Annual Review provides a summary about the required evaluation of graduate students on their progress in the program, teaching/research assistant performance, and professional activity (research and teaching).
