Major Advisors

After declaring a major, students are assigned an academic advisor affiliated with the major department or program. The major advisor may be the undergraduate chair or another faculty or staff member in the major department or program. This advisor will assist in planning the major, identifying research opportunities in the major and discussing fellowship and post-graduate opportunities in the academic field.

Students should still meet with an assistant dean for advising in the College Office periodically to discuss their overall progress toward the degree as well as special academic options and programs.
