Incoming Students

Welcome to the UW Bothell MA in Cultural Studies!


Listserv: The IAS graduate office uses a cohort-specific listserv to communicate program information, class information, dates and deadlines, and more. If you wish to use this to communicate with your colleagues, you are welcome to do so, however please keep in mind that the Grad Office staff and the Cultural Studies Director receive these emails. You are also all on an "all MACS students" listserv, this one includes both cohorts of Cultural Studies students.
