Have questions about the history major or minor?  Considering changing your major to History?  Trying to plan your college career or preparing for graduation?

Students can stop by any advisor’s office for drop-in advising, or email them directly if you would like to set up an appointment.  A list of advisors and office hours are listed below.

It is important to meet with an advisor regularly throughout your education. When the time comes to apply for graduation, it is recommended that you meet with an advisor first to go over your Academic Requirements Report.
