History Advising Resources

Step 1. Schedule a meeting with a History Department Advisor

All tenured and tenure-track professors serve as advisors. Please set up a time to meet with one of the history professors to discuss the major and your future goals. Choosing an advisor is a personal choice, however, we do suggest students consider choosing an advisor they have either taken classes with in the past or share similar research interests with. They can also complete your declaration form with you.

Below you will find a list of our History Advising Sheets. Please utilize these sheets as a supplement, (not a replacement to Degree Works) in order to plan-out/ track your progress throughout your major.
