Where to get advising help

The English Undergraduate Program Office (E345 South College) is here to provide students with information about English courses, degree requirements, and departmental honors.
 

If you are a prospective student (or non-major) ...

We welcome the opportunity to talk to you about the strengths of our department and the ways English Studies can help you can grow as a scholar, writer, and individual. You can contact us by email if you have questions, or call our office at 413-545-0388 to set up an appointment with an advisor.
 

If you are an English major ...

You have access to 2 primary sources of advising: 

  • your assigned faculty advisor (check Spire to find their name)
  • the advisors in E345 South College

You should make an appointment with your advisor each semester before registering for classes, and whenever you have other advising needs during the semester. Advisors can help you select appropriate courses, prepare for internships, and connect with program alumni mentors as you plan for your career.
