Advising & Scheduling Resources

Personalized Advising

Every student in the History/Philosophy Department is assigned an academic advisor who is available to assist with scheduling and career questions. Undergraduate students are required to meet with their advisor a minimum of once per semester to review their academic process. Graduate students may meet with their advisor as needed. The name of your advisor can be found on the my.ship.edu self-service website. For the office, phone number, and email of faculty members, click here.

Additionally, all students in the B.S.Ed. program are assigned an advisor to assist them with negotiating the state's  teacher certification requirements. These advisors are assigned based on the student's last name. Student with last names ending in letters A-M have Dr. Betty Dessants (badess@ship.edu) as their B.S.Ed. advisor. Students with last names from N-Z are assigned to Dr. Robert Shaffer (roshaf@ship.edu).

Dr. Burg serves as the advisor to students in the undergraduate public history concentration.

Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor regularly for advice and assistance.  The department chair, Dr. Steven Burg (sbburg@ship.edu) is also available to assist students with academic or career-related questions.
