Undergraduate Advising

The College of Arts and Sciences has a dual advising system of general/professional advisors and department advisors designed to help undergraduate students achieve academic success.

Department Advising

The Department of Art and Art History’s undergraduate advisors help students get the most of their experience at UMKC by advising them on the specific needs for their major(s) and/or minors.

Our Art History undergraduate students should reach out to Dr. Joseph Hartman for academic advising.

Our Studio Art undergraduate students seeking academic advising should reach out to:

    • Hye Young Shin for studio art students whose last name starts with A – K, or
    • Ricky AllmanĀ  for studio art students whose last name starts with L – Z

To prepare for an advising appointment, students should review their MyPlan Audit and devise a potential course schedule for the upcoming term. Additionally, bring any questions you may have to the advising session.
