Peer Advisors share their knowledge of and experiences with English major courses, extracurriculars and student groups and campus resources. For specific degree requirements/degree checks, please book an appointment with Chloe or Emily. Peer Advisors are unavailable during campus official holidays/breaks. Peer Advisors are available for more general questions.

Faculty Mentor

Newly declared majors can sign up for their own Faculty Advisor! These faculty members are here for you as intellectual mentors. While they cannot assist you with the technical and administrative details about declaring and fulfilling the major and minor, they are eager to welcome you to the department and to serve as mentors for your first year, until you know Berkeley better. The kinds of matters that you might discuss with your Faculty Advisor might include your intellectual interests, classes that might satisfy those interests, your academic choices more generally, and possible study after college. And more! Students are then strongly encouraged to reach out to their faculty advisors and to stop by their regularly-scheduled hours.


All majors, regardless of when they have declared or have specific questions, are also welcome to contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Kevis Goodman. Students can drop in on her office hours, email her for an appointment, or ask your question by email.
