Undergraduate Advising


English majors and minors have access to the department's academic advisors on a daily basis. Our dedicated, in-house English advisors help students select a track within the English major, choose a double major and/or minor, schedule general education and major courses and prepare petitions and graduation applications. In addition, they assist students interested in pursuing independent research or creative projects to locate faculty mentors, provide students with information about study abroad and scholarship opportunities and evaluate English courses for transfer credit. Student may schedule an advising appointment or seek assistance during our drop-in hours.
