Academic Advice

We strongly encourage all students signed up for or interested in the Polish Studies Minor to talk to the Director of Undergraduate Studies about tailoring a program to meet your needs, interests, and circumstances.

Transfer Credit Policy

The director of undergraduate studies for the Department of Transnational Studies, who is a member of the department's full time teaching faculty, is available to meet with students throughout the semester. As we cannot provide advisement through emails, please contact the department's undergraduate studies secretary to find out the director's office hours. Students interested in a Minor in the Polish Studies program are encouraged to speak with the director to discuss their interests in the program, as well as to plan course sequencing to meet all criteria. NOTE: advisement for "general education" and other university requirements for the American Studies degree is provided by advisers in the College of Arts and Sciences Student Advisement & Services.
