Remote Office Hours

On behalf of the Department of Classics at San Francisco State University, we wish to express our sincere support during these trying times. Please take care of yourself and one another.

In response to CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19, the Department of Classics office will be closed, and all events for Fall 2020, Spring 2020 and Spring 2021 will be held online. We look forward to re-opening for Fall 2021.

Woman advising another student

Need Advising?

Choosing coursework and a specific focus is both an exciting and challenging task. We encourage majors to talk with their advisors early and often about course choices, career plans and graduation readiness.

Your advisor will work with you to plan your undergraduate and graduate program, discuss any problems you might encounter and serve as a liaison with the Division of Graduate Studies for our graduate students.

Visit our advising page to find an advisor or visit the Advising Resource Center.
