Advising

Students interested in declaring a major or minor in Classics should speak with an undergraduate advisor in the department.  For the academic year 2014-15, undergraduate advising will be shared by Prof. Lillian Doherty (ldoherty@umd.edu) and Prof. Francisco Barrenechea (fbarrene@umd.edu). 

For advising during the summer, please contact the department chair, Prof. Lillian Doherty (ldoherty@umd.edu). 

Please note that Classics requires all majors to meet with an advisor before registering for classes each semester.

DUAL ADVISING

The Classics Department is part of the College of Arts & Humanities; in addition to the departmental advisor, our majors will also have a college advisor who handles general education and college requirements outside the major.

MANDATORY ADVISING

To ensure timely graduation, students in the following  categories must see an academic advisor at both the college level in 1120 Francis Scott Key Hall and at the departmental level:

  • All freshmen and transfer students during their first semester on campus
  • Newly declared ARHU majors
  • Students with 45-55 credits
  • Students with 90-100 credits

Students may meet with their departmental and/or college advisors any time they have a question about their academic plans and degree requirements; please contact your departmental and/or college advisors to learn about their availability.
