Office Hours

Undergraduate Academic Officer


In order to have a concentration PROPOSAL form approved, you need to have an in-person meeting with the STS Undergraduate Officer, Professor William Deringer.

Students may meet with Professor Deringer about concentration proposal form approvals, concentration class changes, transfer credit advising (for STS-related subjects), and pursuing a minor or joint or double major in STS.

Prof. Deringer is currently holding office hours in E51-188 on Mondays between 1pm and 2:30pm. For the days that he’s on-campus, students can drop by his office without an appointment. For days he is off-campus, please email him to schedule a time and let him know if you prefer to Skype or have a phone call.

In-person meetings: Sept. 9, 23; Oct. 7; Nov. 18; Dec. 2
Via phone or Skype: Sept. 16, 30; Oct. 21, 28; Nov. 4, 25; Dec. 9

If you are making changes to your approved proposal form before submitting your completion, please send an email to Professor Deringer about the change, and submit the change online. If you are submitting a completion form for a concentration proposal that was approved and has no changes, just go ahead and submit your form online.
