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 advisor to have your hold removed.
  • Contact your advisor (see chart below) two weeks before the beginning of the early registration period. If your advisor’s office hours conflict with your academic schedule, ask to meet at an alternate time
  • Bring a complete list of all History courses you’ve taken and are currently taking (including titles) to your meeting. 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 Junko Takeda, for a degree check.
