English Major Mentoring

Professorial faculty in the English Department serve as mentors for our majors. When you declare a concentration or have completed your 2-200 major pre-requisites, you will be assigned to a faculty member whose interests align with yours. Mentors guide students with their course selection, research, and study abroad experiences; provide context to connect English coursework to the world and their future; and develop plans for graduate school, professional programs, and career paths.

Students are responsible for contacting their mentor to schedule an appointment.

If you have questions, please contact the English Undergraduate Office, 974-5401, or Professor Heather Hirschfeld, hhirschf@utk.edu or Pamela Whaley, pwhaley2@utk.edu.
