Faculty advisors are available to all students. Whether you are a history major or minor, interested in becoming one or just taking advantage of the many courses we offer, you can schedule an appointment with a faculty advisor who will assist you with:
- general information about the history major and minor
- course selection
- declaration of a history major or minor
- senior releases for the major or the minor
- choosing a faculty mentor
- study abroad or transfer credit approval
- requirements for teaching certificates (Prof. Maris Vinovskis)
Mentorship for Majors
Combining the benefits of a large research institution with the personalized attention available at a small liberal arts college, the History Department offers each major access to a personal faculty mentor. Every member of the faculty serves as a mentor to students, so don’t hesitate to contact any member of our faculty whose class inspired you or who works on a topic that interests you.
Your mentor can help you devise a program of study that matches your interests. Your mentor can also offer advice about course selection, direct you toward resources for career planning, and brainstorm about what to do when you’ve finished your degree. Most importantly, your mentor is excited to be a partner for conversation and intellectual exchange!
To select a mentor, just complete the mentorship form (PDF), obtain the mentor’s signature and return the form to the majors’ drop box in the main office. And then don’t hesitate to drop in for a chat.
