Welcome to Undergraduate Advising for Comparative Literature, Cinema & Media Studies, Creative Writing, and English
Undergraduate Advising is available to help with academic and career planning, preparation for graduate school, and other questions and concerns of undergraduates, alumni, and prospective undergraduate and graduate students. We also work with prospective and certificated teachers interested in the English Language Arts teaching endorsement for secondary education. We're involved in the UW ArtsLink and UW WordLink, we administer internships and the English Study Abroad Programs, and we run annual workshops for majors on topics such as applying to graduate school, and writing the statement of purpose. We provide a home for Bricolage, the UW's undergraduate literary and art magazine, and AU, the UW's speculative fiction journal. We also work with the Honors Society students in Sigma Tau Delta.
If you would like to meet with an adviser, you will want to e-mail email@example.com to make sure that an adviser is available. There is only one adviser in the office this summer and occasionally she is called to meetings, therefore must close the office (during summer office hours--June 15- September 30th). Please do contact us ahead of your planned visit.
