School of Humanities & Social Sciences

Academic Advising

Students who choose a major within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) will meet with an HSS School advisor to plan their academic coursework. Most students will work with a School advisor for their first two academic years, to help ensure successful completion of General Education degree requirements and entry-level courses for the major. Transfer students also meet with a School advisor in order to plan their first semester of coursework within HSS.

When students reach junior class standing, they will begin to meet with a faculty advisor within their major. This allows students to work directly with faculty in their area of interest, and these advisors can often help facilitate internship or job shadowing opportunities and support students with application processes for graduate schools and professional degree programs.
For information about specific degree programs, visit the ‘Degrees & Programs’ page listed in the menu to the left. Also explore the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ and ‘Advising Resources’ sections prior to scheduling an appointment.

To answer questions about any of the degree programs in Humanities and Social Sciences please contact Pat Doughty for an advising appointment. The advisors can help show how particular classes will fit into each program, or how to find an HSS minor that could compliment a major.

We look forward to working with you!
