Academic Advising

As a small major, we pride ourselves on the mentoring and advising relationships our faculty fosters with our students. From the advising you receive in your courses to the advising we provide for our majors, American Studies is a department built on supporting undergraduate success.

Once you are a declared major, you are required to meet with the Undergraduate Chair prior to registration each semester to make sure you are on track, to discuss any problems you might be having, or to go over course choices, scholarship applications, and plans for the future.  As a major or minor, you will receive emails regarding mandatory advising hours every semester, as well as reminders regarding advising, registration, and graduation deadlines.

The Undergraduate Chair’s office hours vary each semester, and can be obtained from the department office. It is best to make an appointment when coming to see the Undergraduate Chair during and outside of office hours.
