LLC’s doctoral students “get it done” in the Dissertation House – July 2013

Forming a community can be so important to success, particularly during a typically isolating process like graduate school. Today, we feature doctoral students from UMBC’s Department of Language, Literacy, and Culture (LLC) who are working on their dissertations during the 2013 Summer Dissertation House at UMBC. Congratulations to our LLC students who have taken the time to strengthen their community and work toward their goals!
