Advising

Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor  in the Slavic Department if they would like to learn more about the Russian and Polish majors, or the Minors in Russian, Polish, Czech, Ukrainian, BCS, or the Cultures and Literatures of Eastern Europe.  Advisors are able to counsel students about planning a major, and matters such as the Slavic Department's curriculum as it relates to other disciplines on campus, graduate school prospects, and career choices and the skill sets they involve.

Students are required to meet with an advisor in order to: 

  • elect a Major or Minor; 
  • develop or modify a plan for the completion of a program; 
  • complete an audit and receive a release prior to graduation.

Appointments may be made online.

Checklists of the requirements for declaring a Slavic major or minor are available below.

For general questions, such as foreign language proficiency or LSA distribution requirements, students should make an appointment to see a general advisor in the LSA Advising Office, 1255 Angell Hall (ask.lsa.advising@umich.edu).
