American Studies Undergraduate Advising is:
- the place to go to explore American Studies as a major
- for degree-planning for current majors
- to get more information about AMS Departmental Honors
- to discuss post-graduation plans
- a place to get support during your undergraduate journey
- as well as to find out about American Studies courses and faculty
The undergraduate advisor is usually available on a walk-inbasis, so feel free to come by any time during our normal business hours. If you would prefer to make anappointment, contact me by phone or email to arrange a time.
Valeri Nichols-Keller, Academic Advisor since 2007
I joined the College of Liberal Arts as a peer advisor in 2004 while pursuing my M.Ed. in Educational Psychology. After graduation, I became the undergraduate academic advisor for the Department of American Studies. Working with students is the best part of my job. Since AMS is a small department I get to know each of my majors, which allows me to provide the best advising possible.

One of the best tools for advising is an advising audit. This is a computer-generated list of all your classes, as they apply to your degree plan. They are available anytime with a 24 hour advance notice.
