William and Mary

Attend a Class

The class visitation program is designed to supplement our campus tours and information sessions. By observing classes, students can gain an academic insight on William & Mary, and ascertain the type of teaching environment to be found here.   

To observe a general class:
  • The following are the list of pre-approved classes that will be available for the spring semester: 1) Introduction to American Politics 2) American History to 1877 3) Cognitive Psychology 4) Evolution of Organisms 5) Roman Archaeology and Art 6) British Literature 7) Contemporary Moral Issues 8) Science of Nutrition
  • Remember you will need to check in before your class visit at the Undergraduate Admission office to obtain the professor's name and location of the class.
  • If you are interested in visiting a particular class or department that is not one of our pre-approved classes please contact that department directly. 
Guidlines & Suggestions: 
  • Refer to our admission website for driving/parking directions. You can also obtain a campus map in the Office of Admission when you arrive on campus.
  • Please arrive to the class a few minutes early and, if possible, introduce yourself to the professor as a prospective student.
  • Please be sure to thank the professor at the end of the class.
  • Please try to schedule a visit at a time when you can stay for the entire class to avoid potentially disrupting class by leaving early.
  • Please remember to turn off cell phones or set them to silent.

For any further questions you may email [[reavison, Assistant Dean Rebecca Avison]] or contact her by phone at (757) 221-3979.
