An advisor serves a consulting and mentoring role to help you make decisions. Your advisor can help you choose courses that best suit your aspirations and help you make decisions about possible careers. Your advisor often serves as an academic guide, helping you to identify ways to improve your performance, and they offer guidance on requirements for your major and within the School of Liberal Arts. Ultimately, however, you are responsible for making sure that you have met all your graduation requirements.
Our faculty mentors care about your professional success as well as your personal well-being. As professional sociologists themselves, they understand the discipline and its advantages well. From practical concerns to career goals and questions, your advisor is here to listen, brainstorm, and assist.
We encourage you to take advantage of all advising opportunities throughout your time in the program, and beyond.
