The Department of History is pleased to be able to provide peer advising to complement the advising offered by faculty and staff. Peer advisors are advanced history majors who have taken a wide variety of courses in the major and been trained in student services. Students with questions about the history major experience, specific courses, or who would like to brainstorm about potential fields of concentration or thesis topics are encourage to see our peers. We particularly encourage prospective freshman and transfer students to talk to our peers if they want the inside scoop on what studying history at Berkeley is really like.
In addition to meeting with our peer advisors on a drop-in basis, you may email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the front office (510.642.1971) and ask to speak with a peer advisor during the hours posted below.
