Major Advising

Given the richness of choice available within the Humanities Major, careful advising is essential. Each student develops an individual program of study under the supervision of the Humanities Undergraduate Advisors. Frequent consultations with the Undergraduate Advisors are therefore strongly encouraged.

Prospective majors should meet with the Humanities Undergraduate Advisors to discuss the opportunities offered by the Humanities Major and the ways in which courses already taken might fit into the major.

Majors are encouraged to use the Humanities Major Coursework Planning Worksheet to help them keep track of requirements.

In addition to meeting with the program’s undergraduate advisors, students are encouraged to seek out Humanities faculty for advice and guidance on specific areas of interest they may have as well for advice concerning preparation for graduate study.
