Although there are circumstances when you might ‘go it alone,’ talking to an advisor can save you time and ensure that you are headed in the right direction. Advising is important not only for making course and scheduling decisions, but also in your career planning. There are several advisors available for you:
Faculty in the Department of Political Science
Members of the faculty provide a variety of advising opportunities. Each class has been assigned a primary advisor, but you are welcome to visit any of the five primary advisors. Also, if you have already developed an advising relationship and you would like to continue that relationship, you are free to do so.
