Advising

All freshmen and sophomores with concentrations in Literature and Creative Writing meet with Morgan Curtin in the Humanities and Sciences Academic Advising Center, Liberal Arts 133. Students with a concentration in English Teaching meet with Beverly Chin during a group advising session (TBA). Juniors and seniors should look on their Cyberbear homepage to find their primary faculty advisor.

You should plan to meet with your advisor at least once a semester (typically during the advising weeks in October and April) in order to discuss strategies for fulfilling your General Education requirements, the Writing Proficiency Exam, your foreign language requirements, and, of course, your coursework within the English major. These meetings require your active and informed involvement, as well, so do plan to arrive with questions and some sense of a plan for your subsequent semesters. Your advisor will also give you your advising number at this meeting so that you will be able to enroll for classes on Cyberbear when your appointed time ticket arrives.

Students may elect to change advisors at any time for any reason, and may also consult with the Morgan Curtin in Liberal Arts 133 at any time, as well. You can make an appointment with her on Starfish or contact her at morgan.curtin@umontana.edu, (406) 243-2149.
