Major Advisors

Major advisors represent their respective academic department or discipline and are familiar with specific major graduation requirements. Typically they also have the most current knowledge of discipline-specific course offerings, curricular sequence, independent study projects, research and internships, professional organizations, current trends, graduate schools and careers related to the field. Major advisors, in consultation with departmental colleagues, have considerable autonomy over their curricula and major offerings. Major advisors have extremely valuable insight and are often underutilized.

 Follow the link below to find a list of all major advisors.  Some majors have just one major advisor while others have several to choose from.  While some departments allow students to choose an advisor from the list, others assign an advisor by name or specialty.  Feel free to consult other faculty members for supplemental advice on your major or on academics overall.
