Office Hours: Professors and TAs

For questions about homework, upcoming exams, readings, paper topics, enrichment, mentoring, larger questions about the field, etc.

Check your syllabus (usually on Courseworks) for time(s) and location(s). Bring what’s giving you trouble when you go. Can’t make it to scheduled office hours?  Make an appointment by asking the professor after class or sending a polite email outlining your question(s) and requesting a meeting.
