Convocation marks the formal beginning of Gallatin’s Master of Arts Program and is intended to set the tone for an intellectual conversation that will continue to develop over the course of each student’s education. The entering class gathers for a welcome address from the Dean, followed by a series of short talks from faculty and returning MA students. Convocation is designed to address the nature of the graduate experience at Gallatin, offering new MA students useful insights about the opportunities and challenges our graduate students tend to face during their first year of study.
A luncheon hosted by Gallatin faculty members follows the formal program, giving new students a chance to meet other first year students, faculty, and second year students as well.
