33 Years of Interdisciplinary and Cultural Studies @ SDSU

Fall 2020 MALAS Grad Seminars (+ Recommended Seminars and Classes From Across the University)...

Let us begin by underscoring that by no means do the listings below exhaust the many courses you can take and professors you can work with as a graduate student in the MALAS program. Just write directly to Bill Nericcio, MALAS Director, at bnericci@sdsu.edu, with any questions or suggestions for additions to this lineup of seminars and classes. 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 Director/Advisor Bill Nericcio before pursuing this pathway. (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.)

Special Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 COVID-19 Update. MALAS does not really endorse online learning--truth be told, it's not the real deal as part of the magic of graduate school is the seminar, where graduate students work with professors to achieve a higher ideal of learning, of education. That said, the "S" in MALAS is for "Sciences" and we are living together through a new reality in the midst of a pandemic. So, for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 (at least, pending a vaccine or miracle) MALAS will accept graduate level online classes for credit toward your MA.

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

Fall 2020 MALAS-branded Seminars

Note! MALAS 601 is the only true class required to be taken by all MALAS graduate students and is only offered once every two years--all new incoming MALAS graduate students are required to take this seminar as are all new students from Fall 2019 and Fall 2018 who have not taken it already!
