This is the process: you need to

In my department, the Theatre program at The Graduate Center, CUNY, the rules state that the main — or major — field should include 30 books, and the minor fields 25 books. As you can see in the lists above, we are also allowed to exchange some books for 5 articles. (I have some objections to this kind of division and these requirements, which you can read here.)

Also: discuss the fact that I have to get the fields approved in a certain fashion.

Then this page will be one way for my advisors to keep on track with the project.
