Each student's program is worked out with a History Program Adviser to suit the student's specific needs within the general framework of the program.  Advising meetings are on a drop-in basis or by appointment.Students should fill in a "History Minor Program Adivising/Audit" form for two purposes:

1.  Program Advising - if you would like to meet with a History Program Adviser for advising, please fill in the courses you've taken to date on the form and bring it with you when you meet with the adviser.

2.  Graduation Recommendation - if you would like confirmation in your second-to-last or last term that you are on track for graduation, please complete the form and meet with a History Program Adviser before the end of course add/drop in your last term (or sooner if you won't be changing your course choices) to obtain your program adviser's signature indicating that you are on track and will be recommended for graduation for the history component of your degree.
