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.

Starting Monday, April 6, Prof. Deringer will hold office hours via Zoom, available by appointment. Please email him at to arrange a suitable time.

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.
