English Department Advising Office

The English Department Advising Office serves undergraduate majors for each semester's registration, and serves as a hub for information on campus resources, study abroad, internships, and career or graduate school preparation. The office also works with students to advise for and select minors, plan for student engagement activities, prepare for departmental programs like the Honors program, Sigma Tau Delta, and our BA/MA. We love to meet with majors, intended majors, English minors, Creative Writing minors, and all students engaged with the department.
