English Graduate Student Association (EGSA)

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) represents English graduate students at the departmental level and throughout other applicable levels of the university (including the Post-Graduate Student’s Association and AGSEM). We provide and circulate information to English graduate students through a variety of channels including this page, our facebook group, our twitter account (@egsamcgill), and our listserv. We foster a welcoming and stimulating academic and social environment for graduate students within the department, through a variety of social and professional-development events. All graduate students and postdoctoral fellows currently registered in the Department of English are members of this Association, and are warmly encouraged to attend all events and meetings.
