The MA in WRD offers a range of opportunities for students to refine and be recognized for their academic work, including these:
Late in the spring quarter, students are invited to submit their best work to a panel of faculty judges, who give awards to winners in a range of categories.
The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences at DePaul hosts an annual "Interdisciplinary Student Conference," typically on a Friday in March. Students from across the college present papers and projects in the format of an academic conference presentation. This event is a fun opportunity to meet students across the college (e.g., from English, History, Geography, Social Work, Public Health...). Proposals are typically due in mid-January.
DePaul's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences supports the research, scholarship, and creative work of graduate students through its Graduate Research Funding (GRF) program. The GRF helps defray the cost of conducting research and creative work and for presenting papers at academic conferences through a competitive process. MA in WRD students can apply once in every academic year.
