The Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) and the Associate Director of Undergraduate studies (ADUS) work together to advise students about every aspect of studying English in Yale College. Throughout the year they hold meetings on subjects such as choosing introductory English courses, becoming an English major, applying to graduate school, and career paths for English majors after Yale. They work with the English Student Advisory Committee on academic questions related to the major, as well as planning for social events such as the annual Halloween and Valentine’s Day Readings.
