Fall 2017 MALAS Graduate Seminars

Let us begin by underscoring that by no means do the listings below exhaust the list of courses and professors you can explore as a graduate student in the MALAS program. Just write me, Bill Nericcio, MALAS Director, at, with any questions or suggestions for additions to this amazing lineup of seminars and classes.

Note that clicking any of the listings below instantly teleports you to SDSU's official course catalogue. While the choices below are wide-ranging and extensive, it is still highly recommended that MALAS graduate students sign up for MALAS-branded graduate student courses first and then round out their schedule with selections from other departments--the more graduate students we have in our MALAS-branded seminars, the more courses/variety we can offer in the future. In the listings below, MALAS-branded seminars appear first while course offerings from other departments and programs follow.

REMEMBER: It is a good idea to email professors in degree programs that have numerous prerequisites listed BEFORE THE SEMESTER STARTS to ensure that you can indeed take the course--better to be safe than sorry. In some special cases, lower-division courses can be taken for graduate credit--make an appointment with Graduate Advisor Bill Nericcio before pursuing this pathway. MALAS seminars may be taken for credit by advanced undergraduate seniors--go here for more info/protocols/procedures.

(Do note that the SDSU Schedule is always in flux; some of the courses listed below may change their days and times--do let me know of any adjustments that need to be made.)

Are you visiting here from another graduate program at SDSU?! Remember, MALAS Seminars are open to all SDSU graduate students (and advanced senior undergraduates).
