Advising

Slavic Department Advising

Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in the Slavic department if they would like to learn more about the Russian and Polish majors, or the minors in Russian, Polish, Czech, Ukrainian, BCS, or the Cultures and Literatures of Eastern Europe.

Advisors are able to counsel students about planning a major, how the Slavic department's curriculum relates to other disciplines on campus, graduate school prospects, and/or career choices and the skill sets they involve.

Students are required to meet with an advisor in order to:

  • Elect a major or minor;
  • Develop or modify a plan for the completion of a program;
  • Complete an audit and receive a release prior to graduation.

You may schedule an appointment with our advisors via our appointment scheduling page; contact slavic@umich.edu with questions about appointments.

Russian Advising

Professor Michael Makin is available for virtual consultation during the spring and summer 2020 terms; students should contact him at mlmakin@umich.edu with meeting requests.
