It is important for all art history, studio art and graphic design majors and minors to receive academic advice. Professor Claude Baillargeon (318 Wilson Hall, (248) 370-3388, is the chief academic adviser. He will help you to understand the intricacies of fulfilling university, college and departmental requirements. Students should review their progress with Professor Baillargeon at least once a year.

Art history, studio art and graphic design majors and minors should make an appointment with the AAH adviser at the same time as their CAS graduation audit to review their departmental records. For problems outside the majors or minors, we recommend you see an adviser in the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office.
