About Us

In order to create a supportive environment for English majors, the staff advisor and faculty members in the Department of English are committed to providing our students with exceptional academic advising on a regular basis to help them achieve success, prepare for a career, make optimal use of faculty and departmental resources, and get the most out of their experience at UConn. We believe that the classroom experience of English majors is greatly enhanced by one-on-one meetings with faculty advisors. To this end, all faculty advisors meet with their advisees each semester to review students’ plans of study and discuss students’ course selections for the ensuing semester.
