Advising

As a History major, you must meet with your academic advisor every semester to make sure you are on track to graduate (review major requirements). 

Advising Instructions for Majors:

  • Before you may register, you must meet with your faculty advisor to have your History Department hold removed.
  • Contact your faculty advisor (see chart below) two weeks before the beginning of the early registration period. If your faculty advisor’s office hours conflict with your academic schedule, ask to meet at an alternate time.
  • Have a complete list of all History courses you’ve taken and are currently taking (including titles) at hand for your meeting with your faculty advisor. Know your concentration (U.S., Europe, or Global)
  • GRADUATING SENIORS: In the semester before the one in which you are graduating, please meet with the Undergraduate Director, Professor Albrecht Diem, for a degree check.
