Departmental Advising

King Library Campus Entrance

It is a fact that your experience in the program will be enhanced if you meet with your assigned advisor on a regular basis. We strongly recommend that you make an appointment to see your advisor at least once a semester. These meetings will assist you in planning your courses each semester and will provide an opportunity for you discuss your progress in the program. Your advisor is there to assist you with any program issues that may occur.

In addition to face-to-face advising there is one other important component to you success in completing your degree. Students are solely responsible for complying with all undergraduate and graduate policies and procedures governing the filing of required paperwork to ensure graduation. Failure to adhere to University paper filing requirements may delay your graduation date.

If you are a prospective student, please be advised that our advisors do not meet with prospective students; they only meet with students who are currently taking courses in our major. However, each fall, the department holds informational meetings for students who have questions about our graduate program. If you are interested in attending one of these meetings, please refer back to this website in October of 2013 for a list of scheduled informational meetings.
