The History Department offers a large array of courses and programs. To help you navigate your way through these, and to make the most of your studies, we have a number of faculty and staff ready to help with advice, including the department's Director of Undergraduate Studies, Prof. Devin Pendas.

History Majors

Most History majors are assigned History faculty as formal advisors. For most issues your History advisor is the best source of information and you should make it a point to get to know your advisor early and to be in touch whenever you have questions. If you do not know who your assigned advisor is, please check for that information on Agora or consult a Department Assistant.

Second Majors

Students who declared History as a second major have an advisor from the department of their first major. For students in this situation, History faculty member Prof. Patrick Maney is available to answer questions about the History major. You will not be assigned to him. Please contact Prof. Maney to set up an appointment, you are also welcome during his office hours.

History Minors

Students who are interested in minoring in History will not have a faculty advisor in the department and should consult the staff at the front desk about the process and requirements.
