Advising for Current UW Students

Following the University of Washington's Safe Start plan, the School's Advising team is working remotely from home offices. Advising continues to help students discover rigorous and creative academic experiences, competitive scholarships, health and wellness resources, career opportunities, and more. 

Current majors in art, art history or design can contact Advising through email at or by scheduling a Zoom appointment. 

Through individual emails and Zoom appointments the Advising team can help you:

  • plan your major

  • identify and register for classes that fit both your desire to learn and your schedule

  • locate faculty who can guide your learning

  • connect you to other helpful resources and services on campus
  • explore what you see in your professional future and give you insight into majors and classes you could take to reach that future

  • find scholarships, awards, and funding sources

We also help majors in group advising. By participating in these upcoming Advising Zoom events, you can:

  • get involved with the Student Voice Project and discover that there really are great jobs in the arts

  • receive professional advice about how to write cover letters and resumes

  • be inspired by what our alums are doing professionally and how they used their degree in art, art history or design to get there

  • discover that a major in art, art history or design prepares you for
 a surprising variety of jobs and professions
