Department of English


As a major in English, you'll work with a faculty advisor who is highly invested in your success. Advisors assist students in preparing their enrollment schedules, in adjusting to the demands of university life, in planning for post-graduate careers, and in sharpening their skills.

Meet with your advisor every semester to discuss not only your enrollment, but also your dreams for the future and tactics for getting there. Your advisor can also help you navigate university bureaucracy, identify academic and personal goals, and strategize about academic or personal problems.

Once you've declared your program, you'll be assigned an advisor. If you have trouble of any kind connecting with your advisor, please email us at english@ksu.edu.
