Undergraduate Advising in History

Advising at the undergraduate level is critical, since students are encouraged to develop their own thematic, chronological, or geographical focus through their choice of upper-division electives courses as they pursue the major or minor in History.

If you are interested in a particular field of history, we encourage you to consult our faculty list and contact the appropriate faculty member directly.
