Notes for Masters Students
I am NO LONGER the advisor for Masters students who choose the NLP track.
Instead, please contact Julia
Here are some notes from the 2003-2004 year. They have not been
What You Need to Do Before Seeing Me
- Go here and click on
"Natural Language Processing" in the first column. It explains the track.
- Then, on the same page, click on "Form". Print out two copies. On
one copy, fill in the column. You can check availability of courses for
Fall 2003 as well Summer 2003 (as an example as what was
offered in that semester -- no guarantee that the same courses will be
offered Summer 2004) here. Courses for
Spring 2003 can be found here. Again, no guarantee
that the same courses will be offered Spring 2004.
- Go onto MICE and schedule
an appointment with me this Thursday Sep 11 (click on "Schedule/List and Sign
Up"). If you cannot make it on the 11th, email me. I will be out of town
Sep 15 - Sep 26, though reachable by email. If the slots are inconvenient
or full, just show up at 4pm for the meeting for all graduate students and
then come to the meeting for NLP students that starts at 5pm (breakout
session). We will squeeze you in as needed.
- Bring both forms (empty and filled in) when you see me.
This is a list of comments to help you understand the requirements.
Check back here soon for more and updated info!
You can opt out of courses in areas 1 and 2 of the form. To do this, you
must have the professor teaching that course certify that you have taken
equivalent courses. Use this
form and hand it to Twinkle Edwards. If you are allowed to opt out of
a course in 1 or 2, you can instead choose any courses you want, including
If you cannot opt out of any course, you must take these courses: 4 from
(1) including AI, the two courses in (2) and three from (3). Since one of
these must be 6000-level CS courses, you must choose either "Advanced
Machine Learning" or an independent study (COMS-E6901). if you choose the
machine learning course, you also need to take the introductory machine
learning course, since it is a prerequisite. So in that case you would
choose one more course from (3) and one from (4). If you choose the
independent study, you choose two more courses from (3) (I highly
recommend the intro machine learning course in any case, though) and one
from (4). Either way, you have very few choices.
- You should not assume that any particular courses will be offered
Summer 2004. If you want to take one or two credits during Summer 2004,
they should be independent study credits.
