While you are encouraged to visit your professors and teaching assistants during office hours, sometimes you need further logistical guidance, help applying for study abroad programs, or a discussion of career opportunities. Our undergraduate advisor, Dr. Karen Redfield, welcomes conversations with majors, potential majors, and any students inspired by study in this department. Her office is always stocked with a variety of chocolates. Read more about Dr. Redfield here.
Both enrolled and prospective English majors can schedule a 20-minute advising appointment using WiscCal. If you need more time, you may schedule two appointments in a row. If you need to talk and do not find any open appointments, please email Karen Redfield to find another time. If you miss more than two scheduled appointments, you may need to wait longer for a third appointment. Please bring a written copy of your questions and a PDF of your DARS to your appointment. Be prepared to discuss your anticipated graduation date, your major track (Literature, Creative Writing, or Language & Linguistics), plans to double major or study abroad, interest in the honors program, interest in the Writing Fellows Program, involvement in student publications and groups, future plans, and other relevant information.
