Advising


Academic advising is a vital part of the History Department’s commitment to educating its students. Dedicated faculty advisors are assigned to students alphabetically by last name, as follows:

A-Gom:
Dr. Melissa Cooper
melissa.cooper@rutgers.edu

Gon-Paj
Dr. Whitney Strub
wstrub@newark.rutgers.edu

Pak-Z
Dr. Mark Krasovic
krasovic@rutgers.edu

They will have established office hours in the fall and spring semesters and be available by appointment. Students are still welcome to visit our other faculty advisors for questions and discussion about particular research areas.

To get the most out of your visit, you should bring a copy of your current transcript, major/minor worksheet, and identify any questions/concerns that you want to discuss prior to your meeting. 

Remember that academic advising is invaluable to reaching your goal of graduation. Your academic advisor is someone who can help you monitor your academic progress; provide information in designing, developing, and implementing individual academic plans; provide you with letters of reference when you are applying for graduate programs or looking for employment; and link you to resources in getting connected on campus and in the community.
