Language & International Directions Advising

International Directions Advisor Michael Kruse provides academic and career advising to undergraduate students who are interested in languages and international area studies. Michael is available to meet with students from across campus to help connect them with academic programs and campus resources that fit their interests, as well as to discuss professional opportunities that draw on their language-learning and international experiences. Thank you to the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates for making this service possible.

Advising Schedule & Locations

Summer 2014

Available all summer for individual appointments. Please email to schedule.

If this is your first time meeting with Michael please take a few minutes to fill out this survey before your appointment.

To inquire about meeting outside of these times, or if you have a quick question that does not require a conversation, please email Michael at advisor@languageinstitute.wisc.edu. The email should come from your wisc.edu email account (why?) and include your Campus ID number. If it is an ongoing email conversation, please include the history. If it is determined that your question cannot be answered via email you may be asked to make an appointment.
