Academic HomecomingMajor Advisors

After choosing a major, you will work with a faculty advisor in your major department or program. In addition to helping you plan a course program to satisfy major requirements, faculty advisors often facilitate independent study and research within the major and advise on graduate school and other post-baccalaureate opportunities.

Major Advisors

Once you have submitted your Long Range Plan and declared your major, you will either choose or be assigned an academic advisor in the department or program of your primary major. If you have a second major, you can request an advisor in that major as well. Speak to the undergraduate administrator or the director of undergraduate studies in your second major to make this request.

Directors of Undergraduate Studies

For more information on advising for a specific major, please contact the appropriate director of undergraduate studies listed in this DUS directory. A department’s DUS can also answer your questions when choosing a major and help you discover and engage with mentored research opportunities in the department.
