Academic advising is a vital part of the History Department’s commitment to educating its students. Faculty advisors are not assigned and students have the flexibility to seek advisement from any (or multiple) members of our faculty. Faculty will have established office hours every semester. At the start of the fall and spring semester their office hours will be made available in our main office and on our website. Office hours can be found here.

To get the most out of your visit, you should bring a copy of your current transcript, major/minor worksheet, and identify any questions/concerns that you want to discuss prior to your meeting. If you experience any difficulty scheduling a time to meet with an advisor, please contact the Department at

Remember that academic advising is invaluable to reaching your goal of graduation. Your academic advisor is someone who can help you monitor your academic progress; provide information in designing, developing, and implementing individual academic plans; provide you with letters of reference when you are applying for graduate programs or looking for employment; and link you to resources in getting connected on campus and in the community.
