Commencement Information for Linguistics Graduates 2011
Undergraduate Program

UCLA’s Commencement website (http://www.commencement.ucla.edu/index.cfm) is the official reference webpage for all things about commencement -- information about everything from cap and gown ordering to parking. It even has a handy FAQ (http://www.commencement.ucla.edu/faq.cfm).

 

There are many commencement events Linguistics graduates might take part in, including the main Letters & Science Commencement Ceremony on Friday, June 10, at 5pm in Drake Stadium (more information, including ordering tickets: http://www.college.ucla.edu/commencement/).

The information below, however, intends to answer questions about events specific to Linguistics graduates, namely the Humanities I Commencement Ceremony and the Linguistics Department Commencement Reception.
