MEMS — Students wishing to pursue an academic minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the Program’s designated advisor. Appointments are scheduled at the Program Office.

 

The History Department offers a three-tiered advising structure. 

Tier 1: Faculty Advisors from the History Department's Undergraduate Committee 

  • declaring a history concentration - obtaining general advice about the nature, purpose, and utility of a history degree
  • recommending a faculty mentor
  • approving study abroad and transfer credit
  • declaring an academic  minor in History 

To make an appointment, go to http://www.lsa.umich.edu/history/undergraduate/advising.

Tier 2: The Undergraduate Program Coordinator 

  • obtaining general advice about the concentration requirements
  • checking progress towards the concentration or academic minor
  • completing the graduation checklist and release 

To make an appointment, go to http://www.lsa.umich.edu/history/undergraduate/advising.

Tier 3: Individual Faculty Mentors 

  • obtaining approval for a survey sequence and a concentration theme
  • getting advice about course selection
  • obtaining advice about career planning

Students generally meet with a Tier 2 advisor  for help in selecting a mentor, but all subsequent advising will be done by that individual professor.

Faculty who go on leave will designate a substitute, and inform all their mentees of the temporary change.

Students must arrange appointments directly with their mentors, and are expected to do so at least once a term. It is the student's responsibility to take the initiative in setting up these meetings.
