Draper fall 2014 schedule and registration


While registration technically opens on Albert at the end of the month, Draper (and many other departments) are still putting together our course offerings for the fall semester.
We hope to have our schedule up by the end of May, and, as usual, will hold advising in August.
If you see courses in other departments that interest you, you are free to contact those departments about registering, however, you will still be expected to have an advisement appointment at Draper later in the summer.
Please stay tuned for more information on our fall schedule and advisement.
Thank you!

Course Announcement | Reality and Documentary Television, Summer 2012

Reality and Documentary Television, a non-GSAS summer course is open to Draperites for enrollment. Interested students should contact Robert at robert.dimit@nyu.edu regarding registration.

SUMMER COURSE (Graduate level)

Reality and Documentary Television

MCC-GE 2147-001; CINE-GT 1603-001

Instructor: Susan Murray

Meets: M/T/W/TH 10-12:45; May 21-June 8, 2012

Since 2000, we have witnessed the proliferation of “reality” genres across all areas of cable and network programming schedules. While there are specific explanations for the rise of the current wave of reality, reality programming is not new to television and has developed out of and in relationship to other non-fiction television forms–specifically game shows, participation programs, magazine news programs and, of course, documentary. This course will survey the history and development of documentary and reality television and its implications for the aesthetics, form, business and culture of television. Students will develop analytical skills needed to understand the aesthetics and culture referenced and created by the documentary tradition and reality-based programming as well as the business and marketing strategies that have been instituted in relationship to it.

Susan Murray is Associate Professor of Media, Culture and Communication at NYU. She is the co-editor, with Laurie Ouellette, of two editions (2004, 2008) of Reality TV: Remaking Television Culture and the author of Hitch Your Antenna to the Stars: Early Television and Broadcast Stardom (2005).

Check Out Draper’s Summer Writing Workshops

Every summer, Draper offers a workshop course called “Preparation for Graduate School: Summer Writing Workshop.” Although this course was originally designed for incoming graduate students, it has also been very useful to some Draper students after completing their first semesters in the program. 
If you’d like to brush up your writing skills this summer, the course will be offered in both summer session one (with Prof. MacPhail) and summer session two (with Prof. Moga). It’s a pass/fail class which can be taken for two credits, or as a non-credit course (there’s a flat fee of $1,000 for the non-credit section; regular tuition applies to the two credit sections). There are no access codes for Draper’s summer courses, so you can just enroll directly on Albert. 
Course descriptions for both Prof. MacPhail and Prof. Moga’s workshops are below. Email Draper (draper.program@nyu.edu) with any questions about the course or summer registration. 
Summer Session One: 5/21 – 6/29

Summer Writing Workshop
Prof. Theresa MacPhail

Mondays, 6:00 – 8:30 PM
Draper Map Room

Section 001: non-credit 
Section 002: two credits

This course introduces incoming and first-year graduate students to the practice of academic writing. We’ll cover some of the specific forms and styles that graduate students routinely encounter, including: grant proposals and prospectuses, abstracts, book  and literature reviews, critical essays, and research papers. We’ll also seek to demystify the writing process by discussing some of the practical problems that writers face and breaking down the process into manageable tasks at each stage.
Because this course is a practical, hands-on workshop, it will be centered around what you write from week to week, as well as in-class writing activities including peer review, feedback, editing, and discussion. Readings will consist of short articles on particular aspects of writing, and examples of the genres we are working with.
Aside from the writing you produce during the course, you should also have a longer paper that you would like to revise, either something in progress or previously written for another course. It doesn’t have to be a fully polished piece but it should have a recognizable shape with introduction, body and conclusion fleshed out. In case you do not have a suitable paper available, we can make other arrangements.
Summer Session Two: 7/2 – 8/10

Summer Writing Workshop
Prof. Steven Moga

Tuesdays, 6:00 – 8:30 PM
Draper Map Room

Section 003: non-credit 
Section 004: two credits

This course focuses on academic writing in the form of short essays and research papers. Designed as a workshop, it aims to teach students practical skills for success in graduate school through weekly writing assignments, in-class writing and editing exercises, readings about academic writing, and discussion. Topics include style and tone in academic argument, writing with clarity and sophistication, the use of jargon and technical language, time management and the term paper, and the writing process.

Draper’s Provisional Summer 2012 Course Schedule Now Available

Draper’s provisional summer schedule has now been made available on our website, here. Please keep the following information in mind when planning your summer registration:

  • Registration opens on Albert on Monday, February 13, but many departments may not have confirmed their full course schedules until the middle of the spring semester. Please continue to check departmental listings to see updates and additions to course schedules. The last day to register for the Summer Session I is not until May 20, so there will be plenty of time to consider your summer course choices throughout the spring semester.
  • The majority of Draper’s summer courses are crosslists, so our program has to wait for external departments to finalize their summer schedules before we can finish our own. We anticipate, however, that Draper will be adding several more crosslisted classes for the summer, most likely including several English courses in both summer session one and two. Any new information about summer classes–including new crosslists and new course descriptions–will be sent to the listserv and posted here, on in.ter.reg.num, as it becomes available.
  • There are no access codes required to register for summer classes and Draper does not hold formal advising for the summer semester. Please email Robert Dimit directly with questions about summer registration: robert[dot]dimit@nyu[dot]edu.
