MA Colloquium Banner 2Each year, our Master’s Students share their research with fellow students and faculty at the annual MA Colloquium. This engaging student-organized event is a capstone to the MA program, a forum for showcasing papers presented at conferences throughout the year, and a place to preview ongoing Master’s dissertation research. Our 2014 Colloquium was held on June 25th in Dunton Tower.
