All students interested in History, whether or not they are formally declared as History majors, are welcome to drop by the History Undergraduate Advising Office in Room 201 University Hall. The Department's dedicated and award-winning undergraduate advisors provide class information and career advice for students considering History as a focus of study. In addition, the Advising Office has pamphlets and charts on career opportunities as well as information on the Law School Admission Test.

The History Department advisors prepare degree plans for students earning a B.A. in History. History majors must confer with an advisor before every registration period for specific course approval. Advising is also available for conversations of a general nature as well, offering a chance for students to consider career plans, graduate or professional programs, foreign study, or other academic issues.

Bio: A recipient of UTA's Outstanding Academic Advisor Award (2017-18), Nancy received her B.A. in Psychology (with honors) at UT Arlington in 2002. As the first person in her family to earn a college degree, she understands the situation facing UT Arlington’s many “non-traditional” students who are pursuing their degrees while working full or part-time jobs.
