Welcome to the English Department
The goal of academic advising in the Department of English is to assist students in development of meaningful educational plans that are aligned with their individual career aspirations. In the English Department, academic advising is based on a system of shared responsibility between student and advisor. This entails a process of continuous improvement, clarification, and evaluation with the aim of furthering institutional advising goals with student’s desired career and post graduate outcomes.
The English Department views the advising relationship as an on-going conversation that transcends course selection and attempts to assist students as they explore the breadth of a Liberal Arts curriculum, experience college life, focus on their English major or minor, and prepare for life after college.
