Application for Reading Course

Reading courses are generally taken during the second year of the Master of Arts program (see Graduate Student Handbook). First-year students who are thinking about enrolling in a reading course in their second year should talk to a potential supervisor prior to the beginning of the semester they wish to be enrolled. For example, if you wish to enrol for a reading course during the Winter 2016 semester, you should meet with a potential supervisor to discuss course requirements and expectations, as well as a preliminary reading list, in the Fall 2015 semester. The final reading list and course requirements are decided by supervising faculty members. The Application for Reading Course form should be completed and submitted to Michelle Patterson four weeks prior to the start of the next semester. This form is intended for record-keeping purposes only.
