TO DECLARE AN ENGLISH MAJOR OR MINOR OR TO CHANGE YOUR EMPHASIS WITHIN ENGLISH

1. Prepare a what-if degree audit with your desired major and minor. (If you need help generating a what-if degree audit, please contact the LTS Help Desk, tel. 715-836-5711).

2. Get an advising packet for your proposed English major/minor and mark off courses that you have already taken. If you have completed three or more semesters, sketch out your remaining semesters on the degree plan (the last page of the advising packet). Advising packets are available from the kiosk between the elevators and the English Department office on the 4th floor of Hibbard. They are also available on the English Department website: http://www.uwec.edu/english/index.htm

3. Meet with Dr. Benson (during office hours or by appointment) and bring a copy (either paper or electronic) of your what-if degree audit and your advising sheet. To set up an appointment with Dr. Benson, please contact Vickie Schafer (lazarvr@uwec.edu) or stop in the English Department office.
