Once we have been notified by the Registrar's Office of your declaration of the major, we will send an email letting you know which advisor has been assigned to you. This information is also available in DukeHub. Prior to each registration period your advisor will be contacting you to set up an appointment to discuss course selection and advise you on your progression toward the major. If this is a second major for you, your first major advisor is responsible for making you eligible to enroll each semester. Should you have questions at any point regarding the major, you can either contact your advisor or Romance Studies Program Coordinator Kim Travlos. She can review your courses to make sure you are on track for completing the major, discuss study abroad credits, or any procedural matters.
