B.A. Advisement

Students have two options for advisement. They can make an appointment with the College of Social Sciences Advising Center (COSSAC) or they can consult a faculty member in the Department of History.

If you need general advising about the history major and minor requirements, are interested in becoming a history major, or have an advising hold, please contact the COSSAC, which is located in McKee Fisk, room 207.

Before you consult the COSSAC, you should:

  • Download the Department of History's Bachelor of Arts Degree Advising Checklist.
  • Obtain a copy of your DARS Report by downloading it from My Fresno State.

You can make an appointment with the COSSAC in the following ways:

  • GradesFirst in Blackboard
  • Fresno State's Student Portal
  • send an email to COSSAC - ssadvising@csufresno.edu
  • contact one of the COSSAC Academic Counselors directly:
    • Jenny Saechao, 559-278-2432;
    • Ross Whitton, 559-=278-5787

If you need advising regarding history courses, graduate school, or other issues related to the study of history, please consult  your assigned faculty member.

Each history major is assigned a faculty advisor based on his/her last name. See the Department of History's Advisor list.
