The Graduate Experience

Question: How do graduate students perceive courses in their chosen fields?

Answer/Quote: “Yet, most professors begin in covering ground at a dizzying pace, cutting a wide swath through acres of bibliographic titles, layers of history, thickets of scholars’ names, a morass of acronyms, towering terminology, and a tangle of theories.” P. 435.
