Our majors are encouraged to meet with their designated English advisor at least one time per semester. Advisors can help students plan course schedules, design a program of study, and structure their core classes in preparation for work in the major.

Our department has a low advisor-to-student ratio, which ensures that each of our majors is afforded plenty of time and professional attention when meeting with their advisor.
