Faculty Advisors

All undergraduate English advising begins in the College of Humanities EOP Office, in JR 240, (818) 677-4767, where students may seek guidance regarding their major requirements or current or future class schedules.

Advising appointments are mandatory for declaring or changing a major and, one year in advance of the anticipated date of completion, filing for graduation. Additional advising is available in the English Department, and students may be directed there from the EOP office. For general questions concerning the major or other issues pertaining to English careers or future studies, please see the Associate Chair and/ or consult the current list of appropriate option advisers. Graduate advising takes place in the Department, and all graduate students should consult with the Graduate Adviser,Danielle Spratt, as soon as possible upon matriculation.
