In desperate need of degree advice? This page contains information regarding the department's advisors.

Once you've decided to pursue a degree in English, you will need to meet with your Academic Advisor. The English & Literature department has two full-time advsors, Dawn Chase and Samuel Banford. Dawn advises all English and English Education majors with last names beginning with the letters A - K. Samuel advises all English and English Education majors with last names beginning with the letters L - Z. To make an appointment with Dawn or Samuel, call the English & Literature department's front office at (801)863-6292 or (801)863-8577. Have your UV ID on hand. Also, please be aware that during the busier times of the semester (ie - the first few weeks, the last few weeks, and during registration) Dawn and Samuel's schedule can fill 1 - 2 weeks in advance. Plan accordingly.

If this is your first meeting with an Academic Advisor, please read the 1st Meeting with your Academic Advisor page to make sure you are prepared for your first meeting with Dawn or Samuel. This rest of this page will explain what the Academic Advisor does.

What an Academic Advisor Does

Your Academic Advisor is there to help guide you through your college degree program and assist you in making progress towards your academic goals. She or he is a resource, in addition to the course catalog and Wolverine Track degree audit system, to help you understand the requirements for your degree. She or he will explain your options and make suggestions.

Dawn or Samuel can provide personalized assistance, including information on how classes you have already taken apply towards your degree. You should make an appointment to meet with him or her as soon as possible if you're considering this program. Your meeting with them can be more productive if you have researched the degree in the catalog, looked at a degree evaluation in Wolverine Track, and browsed through the degree links on this website.
