Students who wish to major in history must see the history advisor. Before meeting with the advisor, please fill out the advising form and bring a copy of your most recent unofficial grades. This form must be filled out before registering for second year courses. Additionally, you should plan to attend the annual advising meeting for prospective history majors in late March.
